The Capitol Steps: America's Premiere Political Musical Satire Troupe is a political comedy show that offers a mix of song and stand-up, lampooning modern political leaders and taking on the major issues of the day. Originally made up of congressional staffers, the past two decades have seen the Steps harvest the talent of finely tuned musical theater professionals from around the country.
Since they began, the Steps have recorded 35 albums, including the soon-to-be-released Orange Is the New Barack. They've been featured on NBC, CBS, ABC, and PBS and can be heard throughout the year on National Public Radio stations nationwide during their Politics Takes a Holiday radio specials.
Church & State is a fast-paced, seriously funny take on faith, politics, and "The Twitter." It's three days before Charles Whitmore's Senate reelection, and he's decided to finally tell the public exactly what's on his mind, no filter. What could possibly go wrong?
This acclaimed play, written by Jason Odell Williams, received three Ovation Award nominations, including Best Playwriting for an Original Play, Best Production, and Best Lead Actor in a Play.

For over 400 years, the Drunk Shakespeare Society has been meeting and drinking. And drinking. And doing Drunk Shakespeare. A self-proclaimed "drinking club with a Shakespeare problem," its members invite audiences to join them for a meeting in their society lounge. The evening begins with an actor drinking more than a sophisticated amount of alcohol before attempting to lead the cast through a Shakespeare play in one hour. The results are messy, outrageous, and the night devolves into debauchery.
Note: The theater is wheelchair accessible.

Join world-renowned mixologist and raconteur Anthony Caporale for a boozy romp through the history of spirits and cocktails in this smash — make that smashed — hit! Playing in an authentic New York speakeasy once used as a meeting place by the notorious Tammany Society, The Imbible chaperones audiences on a trip through 10,000 years of world history. The journey is accompanied by music — the a capella stylings of The Backwaiters — and craft cocktails. You can sit back, drink up, and enjoy as Anthony holds forth on the history and science behind alcoholic beverages, traces their economic and political impact on our cultural development, conducts live demonstrations of brewing beer and distilling spirits, and, like any good bartender, keeps his guests laughing throughout the night. Tickets to this critically acclaimed comedy sell out weekly, so get yours early.
Note: Each ticket includes three cocktails.
Estranged sisters Lee and Bessie have never seen eye to eye. Lee is a single mother who's been busy raising her troubled teenage son, Hank. Bessie's got her hands full with their elderly father and his soap opera-obsessed sister. When Bessie is diagnosed with leukemia, the two women reunite for the first time in 18 years. Are Lee's good intentions and wig-styling skills enough to make up for her long absence? Can Bessie help Hank finally feel at home somewhere...or at least keep him from burning her house down? Can these almost-strangers become a family in time to make plans, make amends, and maybe make a trip to Disney World? Exploring an unsentimental reality with hope, compassion, and a dose of wonderfully absurd humor, Marvin's Room is a life-affirming reminder of the gift we give ourselves when we love unconditionally.

They say that comedy is tragedy plus time. After over 100 days of Trump, the creators of 2006's acclaimed musical revue Bush Wars declare that it's time! Their new show, Me the People: The Trump America Musical, is uproarious entertainment that takes aim at the embarrassment that is the topsy-turvy presidency of comrade Donald J. Trump.
From his Crony Cabinet to his Supremely Radical Court to White House grifters Ivanka and Jared to the Trumpcare debacle, no one is spared. Me the People also offers a hilarious diagnosis from Sigmund Freud and an earful from Hillary Clinton.
A self-obsessed actor (is there any other kind?) is having a midlife crisis. This leading man gets led astray by indulging his appetite for wine, women, and sleeping late, not necessarily in that order. A theater favorite, he finds himself caught amid crazed playwrights (is there any other kind?), fawning ingenues, secret trysts, and unexpected twists.
Who better to star in this Noël Coward comedy than real-life theater favorite Kevin Kline? Kline, a Tony- and Academy Award winner, takes on the role once filled by the playwright himself. Under the direction of Moritz von Stuelpnagel, this revival of Present Laughter promises to deliver on its title.
