About Charles Playhouse

Charles Playhouse Tickets

The Charles Playhouse has had a long and varied history in Boston’s Theatre District since its beginnings. The venue was originally designed and built in 1839 as the Fifth Universalist Church, later became the first synagogue in Boston, a speakeasy during Prohibition and a fashionable Post-WWII nightclub. The Playhouse is the current home of Boston’s long-running hits, the critically acclaimed Blue Man Group and one of the longest running plays in American History, “Shear Madness.”


Due to the nature of the space, there are structural poles throughout the theater, but the cast movement is across the entire stage.
