Charles Playhouse

The Charles Playhouse of Boston has been home to many a rebel and innovator since its construction in 1839. It began as a speakeasy, then morphed into a jazz nightclub, and finally transformed into a theatre that in 1958 was claimed by the Actor’s Company, a group of Boston University graduates that included -- yes, you probably guessed it -- the one and only Olympia Dukakis.

 

Owned and operated by Broadway in Boston, the Charles Playhouse has been home to the Blue Man Group since 1995. Apparently, they fit right in.
