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 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.
