This is one time where all the hype and hoopla is not only justified, but doesn't come close to suggesting the grandeur of the work on stage. A Triumph.

Mr. Keach, who certainly concocts an uncanny physical resemblance to the man, sculpts a Hemingway that manages to lay bare the considerable flaws while retaining an edge of sympathy.

Why See Capitol Steps?

A Sideways Glance at American Government

Keeping their collective finger on the pulse of Washington politics, Capitol Steps is a troupe of current and former Congressional staffers who have created their very own political musical satire. Taking a humorous look at the personalities on Capitol Hill and in the Oval Office, this show tackles the serious issues of the day with laughs and musical pizzazz!.

First steps to Capitol Steps

Born out of a desperate attempt to put on Christmas entertainment for a staffer's party back in 1981, the complete lack of three wise men led them to put on a series of satirical skits. Since those early days, many of the 'Steps' have given up their day jobs and turned satirical comedy into their livelihoods. Put together, the performers have worked in 18 Congressional offices and represent 62 years of collective House and Senate staff experience!

Who is in Capitol Steps' Sights

These guys are strictly bi-partisan, so everyone is fair game - if someone makes the news, they make it into the show! They've covered everything from the NSA leaks, to mid-term elections to foreign policy. While even the most serious subjects don't escape their scrutiny, the frothy (and very catchy) musical treatment guards against any slip into bad taste.
