Capitol Steps at Beth Am Israel
May 4 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm$72
Join Beth Am Israel for its annual fundraiser and a performance like you’ve never seen from the Capitol Steps.
Born in 1981, The Capitol Steps began as a group of Senate staffers who set out to satirize the very people and places that employed them. They dug into the headlines of the day and crafted musical skits to convey their special brand of satirical humor. Fast forward thirty-five years and while not all of the current members of the Steps are former Capitol Hill staffers, collectively, the performers have worked in a total of eighteen Congressional offices and represent 62 years of collective House and Senate staff experience.
No matter who holds office, there’s never a shortage of material. According to co-founder, Elaina Newport, “Typically the Republicans goof up, and the Democrats party. Then the Democrats goof up and the Republicans party. That’s what we call the two-party system.”
Since they began, The Capitol Steps have recorded more than 35 albums, including their latest two: Make America Grin Again and What to Expect When You’re Electing. They will be performing hits from both at Congregation Beth Am Israel on May 4. The Steps perform all over the country and been featured on NBC, CBS, ABC and PBS, and can be heard twice a year on National Public Radio stations nationwide during their Politics Takes a Holiday radio specials.
