The legendary Chuck Brown is a man of many, many talents. You probably already know that, in addition to inventing an entire genre of music, the Godfather of Go-Go is a guitar player, singer, rapper, party starter, D.C. booster, fedora wearer, and an extraordinarily effective pitchman for lottery tickets and newspapers. But, did you know that he’s also an actor?

Brown has been making a nightly special guest appearance in the stage play “Love Overboard,” which began its run at the Warner Theatre on Tuesday. According to Brown’s manager, Tom Goldfogle, the icon gives a musical performance and also delivers one line during his time on stage. Goldfogle said he was unable to quote the line, but we’d be willing to bet it ends in “doo-wop, doo-wop, doo-wop, doo-wop, doo-wop, doo-wop.”

Your last chance to catch Brown’s line is Sunday, Feb. 1 at the Warner Theatre, 513 13th Street, NW. Tickets are $45.50-54.50.
