THE CAPITOL STEPS RETURN TO CAMBRIDGE WITH THEIR "30TH ANNIVERSARY TOUR". TWO PERFORMANCES ONLY ON SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 26 AT 5PM & 8PM.
The Capitol Steps return to Cambridge's Sanders Theatre at Harvard University with their all-new “30th Anniversary Tour, an evening of musical political satire that pokes fun at Democrats, Republicans, Tea Partiers, Independents and their fans alike. There will be two performances on Saturday, November 26 at 5PM and 8PM. The Capitol Steps appear in Cambridge with the support of public radio station WBUR.
"The 30th Anniversary Tour" brings music, comedy, and satire to the upcoming 2012 election season, health care, bailouts, the environment, the budget, partisan politics, unfaithful politicians, and the Tea Party. Famous for putting the "mock" in democracy, the Capitol Steps have become an annual area Thanksgiving weekend tradition. The irreverent group charms audiences on both sides of the aisle with its unique brand of political humor set to popular music. While the Capitol Steps are renowned for poking fun at occupants of the White House, no one is safe from their satirical barbs, from Democrats to Republicans, Independents to Tea-Partiers, and from Congress to the Supreme Court.
The Capitol Steps began their antics 30 years ago, when a group of Capitol Hill folks set out to satirize the very people and places that employed them. Today, The Capitol Steps perform in Washington weekly, and at theatres and concert halls nationwide throughout the year. They have recorded 30 albums, including their latest, "Desperate Housemembers" . They've been featured on NBC, CBS, ABC, and PBS, and can be heard 4 times a year on NPR stations nationwide during their "Politics Takes a Holiday" radio specials.
The Capitol Steps have twice won the Washington Area Music Association's "Wammie Award" for outstanding cabaret and musical theatre performances; a New York Drama Desk nomination for "outstanding lyrics", and other national accolades.
