THE CAPITOL STEPS PERFORM TONIGHT

The Washington, D.C.-based musical political satire group The Capitol Steps will perform at Old Dominion University's Ted Constant Convocation Center for the President's Lecture Series at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 9.

The performance is free and open to the public and seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.

The Capitol Steps are a troupe of Congressional staffers-turned-comedians who travel the country satirizing the very people and places that once employed them. The Steps perform over 500 shows a year all over the country.

Since they began, the Capitol Steps have recorded 25 albums, including their latest, "Four More Years in the Bush Leagues." They've been featured on NBC, ABC, CBS and PBS, and can be heard 4 times a year on National Public Radio stations nationwide during their "Politics Takes a Holiday" radio specials.

The Capitol Steps were born in December 1981. Since then, the Steps have had over 5,000 performances in 49 states. The group now has 22 cast members, 5 of whom are on stage for any one show.

The material is updated constantly whether to include George Bush's latest geography lesson "Korea" (to West Side Story's "Maria") or their own patriotic American in "God Bless My SUV." Whether it's politicians or the Supreme Court, the Capitol Steps are equal opportunity offenders.
