The funniest show in Washington. I see them twice a year and each time I go, there is a mix of new songs and old favorites. When a scandal hits, see the Capitol Steps to find out what rhymes with it. Though if your name is Pete Buttigieg, the song will be "The Hardest Rhyme". They skewer both Democrats and Republicans with their witty parodies of familiar songs.

This topical review pokes fun at nearly everyone involved in the political process. Whoever is your favorite person in the limelight, he or she will be the butt of at least one comment. Events as recent as the afternoon of the performance are incorporated

They have been around for a long time, but are still worth a visit. ThE Reagan Building is enormous so be prepared to ask directions to the theatre. Parking is reasonable on the West side of building.

Highly recommend seeing this talented troupe of comedy singers who got us laughing at the top stories in DC. Equal opportunity parodies of both parties. Relatively intimate theater with no bad seats. Get ready to laugh out loud!

First time to DC and it was history coming to life. Such an honor to tour it with a staff member from our congressional districts

Great fun to watch this show that has been running for over 30 years. Production changes daily based on the news headlines. Also loved location in the Ronald Reagan International trade center

We absolutely loved the latest incarnation of the Capitol Steps show. The Reagan Building is a great venue with a bar and a policy that lets you bring your drinks into the show! In a time of intense political unrest the Steps manage to skewer everyone equally. What a great evening!

This show was really excellent. The cast were all very talented, and they all have previously worked in government. Both sides of the aisle were poked at, and the show was very up-to-date with current events.

Had never heard of this show but timing allowed us an opportunity to go. A small group of performers that are absolutely hilarious at pointing out the funny and sometime so true political arena in the nations capital. A great way to spend an evening. The Reagan Center is another great structure to visit in the city. They have drinks available as well. If you get a chance to see this show, do it.
