Charlie is a 32-year-old copywriter who never really "went for it" as a musician. Now he's married with a mortgage, feeling lost and not quite sure what he wants out of life. His advertising job is troubled, and he's at a career crossroads in the middle of a down economy. Were he just dealing with this career crisis, that would be enough to keep him awake at night; however, he's visited by a mysterious ghost who warns him that he'sabout to lose everything: his job, his house and his super awesome wife.
Self Doubt: The Musical is funny, twisted and full of angst. Also, there are rock songs.
Followed at 10pm on the Mainstage, free --A beer blast!
