Hylton Presents:

The Capitol Steps: What to Expect When You're Electing

  • September 18, 2016 at 7:00 pm

Merchant Hall

Before you head to the polls to elect our 45th president, join us for the rocking and roasting local institution, The Capitol Steps. For more than 30 years, The Capitol Steps has traveled the nation satirizing the most serious of subjects: politics. Founded by Hill staffers in 1981, their blend of humor and musical comedy leaves both sides of the aisle rolling in laughter. Absolutely no one is safe from their lampooning -from Bernie Sanders belting out a show tune, to Donald Trump rocking out, to a Hillary Clinton stand-up routine. The Capitol Steps presents renditions from their current review, including Mitt Romney's ballad "Hello, Is It Mitt You're Looking For?," "If There Were No Rich Men" from Senator Sanders, and Clinton's "Deleter of the Facts." No matter who or what is in the headlines, you can bet The Capitol Steps will prove that if you are not part of the solution, you're probably running for President. "Its political satire brings chuckles…rave reviews…guffaws…and bipartisan grins all around." (The Wall Street Journal)
