Spend one Friday night at the Charles Playhouse and you’ll see ‘rec league karaoke’ like you’ve never seen before. It’s a favorite spot for the city’s fringe theater actors to come and blow off some steam after their sparsely attended shows. Remember in high school walking by the drama kids as they all fought to get each other’s attention? That’s what karaoke night at the Charles is like: only with cheap booze and a microphone. It’s “Are You Gonna Go My Way” vs. “Give It Away” vs. “Never Gonna Get It” vs. anything else that got played out circa 1994. Attention-whores they may be, the theater types are also a supportive crowd – one that’s more than willing to give you your props if you get up there and rip shit up.
