    open mike = open stage

    Dear teacher,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether the expression “open mike” and “open stage” are interchangeable?

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.

    They can be. It would depend on the context.

    Re: open mike = open stage

    I'm only familiar with "open mike" which (in this context) means that anyone can come up and do comedy, sing, read a poem, or perform whatever type of entertainment that is sponsored in that venue.

    (Another use of "open mike" is a mike that is "live" or "on.")
