No one in the headlines is safe from the side-splitting satire of the Capitol Steps, the only group in Washington attempting to be funnier than Congress. These former congressional staffers travel the country satirizing the very people and places that once employed them with updated material right from the days’ news cycle.
No matter who or what is in the headlines, you can bet the Capitol Steps will tackle both sides of the political spectrum and all things equally foolish. What more would you expect in an election year?
“They’re the best,” CNN’s Larry King said. “There’s no one like them, no one in their league.”
Capitol Steps will be jump-starting Lobero LIVE’s A Series of Wits, a new series featuring the most clever live theater, offering a glance at the election season through the dual lenses of the satirical Capitol Steps in September and the timeless commentary of Mark Twain as played by Oscar-nominee Hal Holbrook in November. In between, dine on the delights of food and family with Food Confessions, a saucy new play by Nancy Nufer.
