Oct. 1-2

Capitol Steps

· Saturday: 7:30 p.m.

· Sunday: 4 p.m.

Another election, another song. Capitol Steps was born when some Senate staffers were planning a Christmas party. They wanted to stage a nativity play, but in the whole Congress they couldn't find three wise men or a virgin. So, they dug into the headlines to create their special brand of parody, satire and song. This election year, imagine the fun they'll have!
