Enjoy an evening of side-splitting political humor before getting out to vote on Election Day! After sold-out performances in previous seasons at the Hylton Center, Capitol Steps returns to Merchant Hall at the height of the election season. Audiences love their hysterical musical parodies satirizing the current state of the union. This unique comic ensemble began more than 30 years ago when a group of Senate staffers performed for their office Christmas party. Now, the musical comedy troupe has become an institution in Washington, D.C. and beyond with its special brand of satirical humor that famously lampoons characters from both sides of the political aisle. They will have you rolling in the aisles with their spot-on caricatures, song parodies, and clever skits. “When it comes to satire, you haven’t seen the real thing until you have been to the Capitol Steps.” (The Washington Post)
