Pop-Up Magazine, the acclaimed “live magazine” is bringing its first ever themed tour — The Escape Issue — produced in collaboration with The California Sunday Magazine, to David Geffen Hall at Lincoln Center on October 10. A night of new, true stories about the fascinating world around us, each issue is different from the last, with photography, film, radio, and original music mixed together and performed live onstage by a cast of talented people.
We could all use a little escape. From politics. From the past. From hostile countries and climate change. From the Internet. From negativity. Maybe even from ourselves. Join Pop-Up Magazine for an immersive night of storytelling devoted to escapes big and small, daring and mundane, physical and mental.
Contributors to Pop-Up Magazine's Escape Issue include comedians Jo Firestone (Shrill) and Jordan Carlos (HBO’s Divorce; Black Mirror; WNYC’s Adulting); poet Sarah Kay (Project VOICE); writers Chris Duffy (Wyatt Cenac's Problem Areas), Clio Chang (Jezebel, The New Republic), and Keri Blakinger (Houston Chronicle); musician Left at London; photographers Lucas Foglia (International Center of Photography, SF MOMA) and Lisette Poole (Time, The Atlantic, The New York Times)
