A fresh spin on several Brothers Grimm fairy tales, Into the Woods interweaves and reimagines the stories of a number of beloved characters to examine whether "happily ever after" is really even possible. Unable to bear children, a baker and his wife are lured into completing a number of tasks by a witch who promises to grant them their wish. During their journey, they encounter Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, Cinderella and Jack and the Beanstalk. With music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by James Lapine, the original Broadway run won critical praise and numerous awards. The cast recording, which includes "Children Will Listen," "Giants in The Sky" and "No One Is Alone" took home a Grammy. It's set to get the Hollywood movie treatment this year in a film starring Johnny Depp and Meryl Streep. Learn More

Heaven only knows what sort of mischief and deviltry takes place at Congressional office parties. But for the curious, as well as those who just want to have a good time, meet the Capitol Steps.
They’re an incorrigible group of political spoofers who put new words to familiar songs like George Bush singing “Don’t Go Fakin’ You’re Smart” to the tune of Elton John’s “Don’t Go Breakin’ My Heart” — they’re self-proclaimed Equal Opportunity Offenders!
The only group claiming to be funnier than the U.S. Congress, they take a humorously bipartisan look at serious issues through hilarious songs and sketches.
