Event Description

Both Performances Sold Out

Experience the extremely funny satirical troupe that puts the “MOCK” in Democracy!

The Capitol Steps began as a group of Senate staffers who set out to satirize the very people and places that employed them. It was 1981, and some staffers for Senator Charles Percy were planning entertainment for a Christmas party. Their first idea was to stage a nativity play, but in the whole Congress they couldn’t find three wise men or a virgin. So, they decided to dig into the headlines of the day, and they created song parodies & skits which conveyed a special brand of satirical humor.

In the years that followed, many of the Steps ignored the conventional wisdom (“Don’t quit your day job!”), and 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 62 years of collective House and Senate staff experience. Some work for Democrats, some for Republicans, and others for politicians who firmly straddle the fence. No matter who holds office, there’s never a shortage of material.

Since they began, the Capitol Steps have recorded over 30 albums, including their latest, Orange Is the New Barack. They’ve been featured on NBC, CBS, ABC, and PBS, and can be heard twice a year on National Public Radio stations nationwide during their “Politics Takes a Holiday” radio specials.

Cast Line-Up:  Kevin Corbett, Morgan Duncan, Brian Ash, Bari Biern, Ann Schmitt

Pianist: Howard Breitbart
