The Capitol Steps

December 31, 2019 2 – 4 p.m.

Irreverent, uproarious, and adamantly bipartisan, The Capitol Steps are back for Rochester’s favorite New Year’s Eve tradition of political satire. The award-winning troupe that began as a group of U.S. Senate staffers has been featured numerous times on primetime TV, as well as four times a year on its popular NPR specials.

Now in its 38th year, The Capitol Steps has recorded an album of laugh-out-loud song skits a year, and 2019 promises to be no exception. The Capitol Steps will present a new show based on their new album The Lyin' Kings, featuring new parody songs like I Did Nothing in Ukraine, The Sound of SandersCan you Feel the Rub Tonight, and It's My Party (and I'll Lie if I Want To)Quite simply, The Capitol Steps puts the “mock” in democracy.

Single tickets: $45–$75 (eligible for Arts Center subscriber discounts)
