Just in time for the upcoming 2012 election, The Capitol Steps will perform at the Mayerson JCC on Thursday, Sept. 13 at 7 p.m. This nationally renowned group of former U.S. Congressional staffers will perform an entertaining show featuring political satire, musical talent and comical twists about current political headline topics.
Tickets for this one-night-only special event go on sale Friday, Aug. 17 at 8 a.m.
Recent events at the JCC have been huge successes. Past sell-outs include Joshua Foer, memory expert and best-selling author of Moonwalking with Einstein; Mandy Patinkin, Tony-award winning Broadway legend and TV star; and most recently, a standing-room-only World Choir Games Friendship Concert.
The Capitol Steps have been featured on NPR, NBC, CBS, ABC and PBS. According to National Public Radio, “The Capitol Steps take a humorous look at serious issues while providing a nationwide laugh for millions.”
“The troupe has become a favorite on the Washington social circuit. Its political satire brings chuckles, rave reviews, guffaws, bipartisan grins all around. The satire hits the mark,” says The Wall Street Journal.
This popular, entertaining ensemble has worked in a total of 18 Congressional offices, and represent 62 years of collective House and Senate experience. Their unique blend of political satire and comedy has brought them great success, performing for five U.S. presidents and in all 50 states. There’s no better way to get excited about the 2012 election than to watch these experienced performers cover the latest topics in a comical way.
The group has recorded 32 albums, including Obama Mia!, Liberal Shop of Horrors, and Desperate Housemembers. People who purchase tickets for the JCC performance before Aug. 31 will be entered to win a free CD of the Capitol Steps’ latest album, Take the Money and Run for President.
