Pop-Up Magazine, the acclaimed “live magazine” is bringing a new Fall Issue show to BAM Howard Gilman Opera House on September 27. 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.

The 2018 Fall Issue will travel to changing small-town America, go inside a controversial terrorist rehabilitation facility, consider the ethics of being mean to robots, attempt to bring a flower back from extinction, look at thirst traps through the ages, and much, much more. No video or audio is posted online. You have to be there to see it.

Contributors include writers Rebecca Skloot (#1 New York Times bestseller The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks), Ed Yong (The Atlantic), Ann Friedman (New York Magazine, Los Angeles Times; co-host, Call Your Girlfriend podcast), Emily Dreyfuss (Wired), Jason Parham (Wired), Marc Bamuthi Joseph (playwright, /peh-LO-tah/), Rowan Jacobsen (A Geography of Oysters); filmmaker Meg Smaker (Boxeadora); photographers Landon Nordeman and Lara Shipley; and more.

After the show, performers, producers, and the audience stick around for drinks and conversation. Learn more about the show and grab tickets (starting at $36) at www.popupmagazine.com.
