The Charles Playhouse was designed by architect Benjamin Asher in 1839 as the Fifth Universalist Church. By 1864 it became the first synagogue in Boston, before serving the Scottish Presbyterian concergations and the YWCA. After its stint as a prohibition speakeasy, it was renamed with two different performance spaces.
