Pop-Up Magazine At The Wilbur Theatre

This article is more than 4 years old.

For the first time on the East Coast- WBUR is proud to have brought west coast phenomenon Pop-Up Magazine to The Wilbur Theatre for a “live magazine,” evening of true stories, photography, documentary film and radio!
Some of the country’s most interesting writers, filmmakers, photographers, radio producers, and illustrators shared new, true stories onstage.

Stories came to life on a giant screen filled with photographs, films, illustrations and animations. All brand new, nothing published or aired before.
The theme was no theme. Science, music, art, business, food, literature, design and nature – all in one show.
Story soundtracks were composed and performed live onstage by Magik*Magik Orchestra and special guests.
Fans joined the performers and audience members at the W Boston to swap stories over drinks after the show.
Past shows have included best-selling authors like Susan Orlean, Michael Pollan and Alice Walker; Oscar-winning filmmakers; public radio personalities from shows like NPR’s This American Life and Radio Lab; famed photographers like Larry Sultan, Richard Misrach and Autumn de Wilde; and artists and actors from Beck to John C. Reilly.
