A friend turned me on to Pop Ups, a Brooklyn based duo who come out to LA frequently to perform their play, “Pasta,” about the search for the greatest tomato sauce. Ah, yes. They use old-school puppets (like, muppets from the 70s,) compose their own music (think: songs about the F train,) and discover the perfect garlic clove for their marinara in Brighton Beach. Or something. Anyway, it’s rad and I’ve recruited all my urbanite pals. We are revving up for our third go this Spring but if you are in New York, it’s worth it! Here, a make-shift playhouse from Vilac for those impromptu subway sing-alongs.
