Only in America could you see a comedy in a federal building that makes fun of politics and politicians of both parties. A great show and fun way to spend the evening.

Hilarious show by Capitol Steps on current U.S. President and national and international issues. Not to worry, they effectively poke fun at both sides of the aisle! Saw them Friday, during which they tapped the show for NPR’s New Years Eve broadcast. So, if you...More

I have seen the Capital Steps a few times before and have enjoyed the show each time. All seats are great and these people are really talented...great singing voices and the satire is wonderful. This show is a great value for the cost.
