Pop-Up Magazine for My Spilt Milk

(02/27/18) Sydney’s Saloon, North Korea and a Filipino Rockstar: A Series of Stories at the Civic: Friday’s Pop-Up Magazine show at the Civic Theatre was advertised only as a “live magazine,” leaving the audience mostly in the dark about what to expect. After seeing the show, it’s easy to see why. The presenters touched on such a wide range of topics, and the fusion of speaking, visuals and music was so complete that to capture the show’s appeal in a concise description would be nearly impossible. Ultimately, it was an ambitious project with a diverse group of speakers presenting on an ever farther-flung range of topics, but its slick production and emphasis on storytelling allowed it to bridge the gap between intellectual stimulation and pure enjoyment and become a truly unique kind of entertainment.
