The Capitol Steps

December 31, 2017 6:30 – 8 p.m. December 31 – December 31

The Capitol Steps return to the Arts Center for Rochester's favorite New Year's Eve tradition of politically based satire ripped from current headlines. Irreverent, uproarious, and adamantly bi-partisan, the award-winning troupe has been featured numerous times on primetime TV, as well as four times a year on its popular National Public Radio specials.

Now in its 36th year, The Capitol Steps has recorded an album of laugh-out-loud song skits a year, and 2017 promises to be no exception. Expect parodies skewering the greatest political foibles of the day: cabinet and court appointees, hacked elections, tapped phones, border walls, fake news, Russia, and — of course — repealing Obamacare. Quite simply, The Capitol Steps puts the “mock” in democracy.

Single tickets: $60–$75 (eligible for Arts Center 15% and 20% subscriber discounts)

Sponsored by Jim and Flower Leo and Margaret R. Colacino.


Live jazz prior to both performances and during intermission featuring students from the Nazareth College Music Department!
