The Capitol Steps in "The Lyin' Kings"
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
Washington politics got you down? Try some laughter therapy. The Capitol Steps are America's premiere political-musical-satire troupe. Their newest show, "The Lyin'Kings," will find all the laughs amidst the current buffoonery in our nation's capital. This is the group that puts the "MOCK" in Democracy! Originally made up of congressional staffers, the company is now an ensemble of finely-tuned musical theater professionals from around the country. They were nominated for the Drama Desk Awards in 2007 for "Outstanding Lyrics."
"The Lyin' Kings" draws its humor from today’s headlines and twitter feeds. It includes the latest songs about the Democratic primary candidates (“76 Unknowns”) and the newest late-night thoughts from President Trump (“Tweet It”). No one knows whom 2020 will bring to the forefront, but whether it’s Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez or Beto O’Rourke, the Capitol Steps will rhyme it. This new show, in formation until it opens, may serve up such delicacies as Donald Trump singing a rock song, Bernie Sanders singing a show tune or Vladimir Putin dancing shirtless. You'll never know whether Nancy Pelosi, William Barr or Kim Jong-un might appear onstage together in a musical number. There may even be a few golden oldies from the Obama and Bush eras.
More truthful that a Twitter feed! More costume changes than a Cher concert!
Venue: Peter Jay Sharp Theatre at Symphony Space
Upper Level, 2537 Broadway,
