The Capitol Steps

The Capitol Steps

Spectacle Management is proud to bring The Capitol Steps to Massachusetts for three shows on the South Shore and Cape Cod this June. The Capitol Steps have been a Washington, DC institution for over thirty years, providing a unique blend of musical and political comedy to our Nation’s Capitol and more.  Each show consists of tasteful lampooning guaranteed to leave both sides of the political spectrum laughing. American politics has reached new heights of absurdity, and The Capitol Steps will be singing all about it with their latest offerings, including “Loonies of the Right,” “Trump Acres,” “Tweet, Tweet” and much, much more! Tickets for The Capitol Steps on Thursday, June 8 at 7:30pm at Barnstable Performing Arts Center in Hyannis, Friday, June 9 at 7:30pm at Monomoy High School Performing Arts Center in Harwich, and Saturday, June 10 at Plymouth Memorial Hall in Plymouth are $59-$39 and are go on sale Friday, April 7 at 10am at CapeCodShows.com or by calling 617-531-1257.

THE CAPITOL STEPS
The Capitol Steps were born in December, 1981 when some staffers for Senator Charles Percy were planning entertainment for a Christmas party. Ronald Reagan was President when the Steps began, so co-founders Elaina Newport, Bill Strauss and Jim Aidala figured that if entertainers could become politicians, then politicians could become entertainers! 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 created song parodies & skits which conveyed a special brand of satirical humor that was as popular in Peoria as it was on Pennsylvania Avenue.

Most cast members have worked on Capitol Hill; some 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. Says Elaina Newport, “Typically the Republicans goof up, and the Democrats party. Then the Democrats goof up and the Republicans party. That’s what we call the two-party system.”

Their act is constantly changing, strenuously bi-partisan, and includes songs that don’t pull any punches. So if you’ve ever wanted to see Donald Trump sing a rock song, Bernie Sanders sing a show tune, and Hillary Clinton do stand-up comedy, this might just be the show for you!  www.capsteps.com
