Can you feel the love tonight? If news and politics are eating away at you like a pride of lions feasting on a wildebeest carcass on the African savannah, it’s time to just chuckle and say, “Hakuna Matata!” No worries! The circle of life and laughter continue with our annual visit from the Capitol Steps with a menagerie of fresh musical parodies. No matter who or what is in the headlines, you can bet the Capitol Steps will tackle both sides of the political spectrum with their hilariously biting musical satire. What more would you expect from the group that put the “MOCK” in Democracy?!

*Note: New for this season—we added a SIXTH Capitol Steps performance on Wednesday evening and also give patrons TWO matinee performances (Saturday & Sunday at 2pm) from which to choose.

The Capitol Steps first began tickling political funny bones over thirty years ago as a group of Senate staffers who set out to poke fun at the very people and places that employed them. Since they began, The Capitol Steps have recorded over thirty-seven albums, including the latest, The Lyin’ Kings (2019). They have been featured on NBC, CBS, ABC, and PBS, and can be heard four times a year on National Public Radio stations nationwide during their Politics Takes a Holiday radio specials. Although not all of the current members of the Steps are former Capitol Hill staffers, taken together the performers have worked in a total of eighteen Congressional offices and represent sixty-two years of collective House and Senate staff experience and performed for five US Presidents.  Most cast members have worked on Capitol Hill; some for Democrats, some for Republicans. No matter who holds office, there is never a shortage of material.  Performer and co-writer Mark Eaton states, “We’ve always said our show’s greatest enemy is a competent government. Therefore, we should be around for a long, long time.”
