Capitol Steps: "Orange is the New Barack" Tour

Musical, Comedy

The Capitol Steps (, America's premiere political-musical satire troupe, have been a national institution for over 36 years, providing a unique blend of musical and political comedy and satire to audiences coast-to-coast. The Capitol Steps make history in the aftershock of the “historical and hysterical” presidential election in their newly subtitled “Orange Is The New Barack" show. The troupe started in 1981. Since then, they have appeared on The Today Show, Nightline, CBS Evening News and for many years in specials for NPR. Famous for putting the "mock" in democracy, the Capitol Steps bring laughing tears to the eyes, and have proven to be much cheaper than therapy. The troupe will offer its newest show, "Orange is the New Barack," a brand-new vaudeville-like comedy show with a mix of song and standup, lampooning our modern political leaders, taking on the major issues of the day and sharing songs from the group’s newest album.
