With his Academy Award-winning performance as Otis "Bad" Blake in 2009's Crazy Heart, Jeff Bridges (The Big Lebowski, True Grit, Iron Man) proved himself to be not just an amazing actor, but also an engaging country singer and performer. And this was no passing fancy for Bridges, who's harbored a passion for music since playing piano and guitar in his younger days. Bridges has released two studio albums -- 2000's Be Here Soon and 2011's self-titled record that was produced by Grammy and Academy Award-winning singer-songwriter T Bone Burnett, who collaborated on the celebrated soundtrack to Crazy Heart. Now, with his backing band known as The Abiders (a reference that any fan of The Big Lebowski should appreciate), Jeff Bridges brings his live show to the stage of the Wilbur Theatre. Learn More

We had been wanting to see this show since last summer at the Cranwell but they were sold out. We thoroughly enjoyed the political satire and the voices and acting were superb.

The Capitol Steps began as a group of Senate staffers who set out to satirize the very people and places that employed them. In the years that followed, many of the Steps ignored the conventional wisdom (“Don’t quit your day job!”), and although not all of the current members of the Steps are former Capitol Hill staffers, taken together the performers have worked in a total of eighteen Congressional offices and represent 62 years of collective House and Senate staff experience. The material is updated constantly, whether it is the Democrats’ current infatuation with Barack Obama or the latest opinion from Ann Coulter, or on the international side, President Bush and the Prime Minister of Japan reconciling their differences. No matter who’s in the headlines, the Capitol Steps are equal opportunity offenders.
