The Capitol Steps (http://www.capsteps.com), America's premiere musical-political satire troupe will appear at the Crest Theatre on Saturday, March 16, 2019 for One Night Only! Doors open at 6:30 pm and the show begins at 7:30pm. The troupe will offer its newest show, "Make America Grin Again," which provides an enormous amount of new material to make you laugh until you cry.This vaudeville-like comedy show provides a mix of song and standup, lampooning our historic mid-term elections, modern political leaders, taking on the major issues of the day and sharing songs from the group’s newest album. There will be one show at 7:30 PM.
The Capitol Steps puts the "MOCK" in Democracy! Originally made up of congressional staffers, the past decade has seen the "Steps" harvest the talents of finely tuned musical theater professionals from around the country. They were nominated for the Drama Desk Awards for "Outstanding Lyrics."
In addition to the all-new show, the Capitol Steps have a new album - Make America Grin Again (2018)!
The "STEPS" never miss a news-worthy scandal as they perform songs like:
- Brett Kavanaugh: "Calendar Proof" (Based on Neil Sedaka's "Calendar Girl")
- Vlad and the Kremlin Squares sing: "Trollin on the Twitter"
- Trump’s - "It’s my Party" (and I'll Lie if I want to)
- "You Don't Send Me Emails, Anymore" (a 2018 update to Barbara Streisand’s “You Don’t Bring Me Flowers”)
The Capitol Steps are constantly updating their material to reflect the biggest political news of the day. The group have elevated musical satire to an art form. Before The Daily Show, Full Frontal, and The Colbert Report, this Washington, DC-based comedy troupe gave audience laugh cramps with their bipartisan lampooning. The Capitol Steps began in 1981 as a group of DC staffers who set out to satirize their employers and haven’t let up since. If you’ve been keeping with the news, you know there’s no shortage of material. It doesn’t matter if you’re right or left side of the aisle, a snowflake or a deplorable: neither side is safe from this hilarious troupe.
The Capitol Steps shows, being headline-driven, are unpredictable, so the complete song list and cast list can't be forecast in advance. The troupe pounces on breaking news events in order to keep the show fresh.
