A Capitol Performance by the Capitol Steps – where Pennsylvania Avenue meets Broadway
Don’t miss our final night’s social event featuring the Capitol Steps, Washington DC’s award-winning political satire group. Most cast members have worked on Capitol Hill; some for Democrats, some for Republicans, and others for politicians who firmly straddle the fence. It’s political cabaret at its best! With their spot on satire and great cast of performers, you will never think of Congress or anyone in the political field in the same way. No matter who or what is in the headlines, you can bet the Capitol Steps will tackle both sides of the political spectrum and all things equally foolish. What more would you expect from the group that puts the "MOCK" in Democracy?!
(Dinner 6:30 to 8:00; performance from 8:00 to 9:00)
