Politicians beware! The political parody masters Capitol Steps are returning to the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts for a three-week run March 12-24. Featuring musical sketches with titles like “You Just Can’t Hide This Biden Guy,” “Super Congress Debt Committee” and the infamous “Lirty Dies,” the Capitol Steps’ new album Take the Money and Run… For President leaves no political party, scandal or world event from 2012 unsung.
Capitol Steps, a singing and dancing group composed of many former Senate staffers, has been putting the “mock in democracy” for 30 years. Since they began, the Capitol Steps have recorded more than 30 albums. They’ve been featured on TV and can be heard four times a year on National Public Radio stations nationwide during their “Politics Takes a Holiday” radio specials.
This year, the group has done a special tribute to all of the major political events and scandals from the past 30 years, within one single sketch, entitled “We Didn’t Start the Satire.”
