About this show

The Capitol Steps bring their latest satirical musical, The Capitol Steps: Between Iraq and a Hard Place to the John Houseman Theatre in the fifth off-Broadway engagement for the Washington, D.C. based company. Armed with hilarious new songs and send-ups, the show features timely and irreverent spoofs of the headlines. The Steps promise to bring down the entire house, and Senate. Current numbers include "God Bless My SUV," President Bush and family celebrating the victory in Iraq with "Papa's Got a Brand New Baghdad," and riffs on everything from Hans Blix to Martha Stewart (and everything in between)! The rotating company includes co-founders Bill Strauss and Elaina Newport as well as Mike Carruthers, Kevin Corbett, Ann Johnson, Linda Rose Payne, Jack Rowles, Tracey Stephens, Mike Thornton, Mike Tilford and Jamie Zemarel. There are Sunday performances on August 31st @ 3:00 p.m. & 8:00 p.m.
