Capitol Steps: Orange is the New Barack September 15, 2018
THE SINGING PARODISTS WHO PUT THE “MOCK” IN DEMOCRACY
“It may seem redundant to ridicule the chaos that is today’s Washington. But if you think that present-day politicians have inadvertently cornered the market on parody, check out Capitol Steps to see what the real experts can do.” -Berkshire On Stage
When the Capitol Steps hear of a scandal, they don’t think about whether it’s good or bad for the country. Counting among their ranks several former Congressional staffers, they instead ask themselves: Is it funny? And what rhymes with it?
After enough news cycles, they’ve got a show full of topical, irreverent ditties, brought to life by costume changes, choreography, and a razor-sharp musical team. Their latest ode to political dysfunction, Orange Is The New Barack, takes an unsparing and hilarious look at all your favorite, most reviled figures, ripped straight from the headlines.
