The Capitol Steps returns to the Warner with their new show, "Orange Is The New Barack," featuring new faces from the Trump White House and Mar-A-Lago join old faces from the Obama years to bring their musical political satire to Torrington!
The Capitol Steps have been a national institution for over 35 years, providing a unique blend of musical and political comedy and satire to audiences coast-to-coast. Each show consists of tasteful lampooning guaranteed to leave both sides of the political spectrum laughing. The troupe started in 1981 and since then, they have appeared on The Today Show, Nightline, CBS Evening News and for many years in specials for NPR.
Elania Newport, co-founder of The Capitol Steps says, “More than ever, people are coming up to us after our show and saying, ‘Boy I needed that!’ – It’s a crazy time and people need a laugh. Of course, our challenge is to be more outrageous than the headlines! So, we have Donald Trump singing a rock song, Bernie Sanders singing a show tune and Vladimir Putin dancing shirtless…you can’t see that anywhere else!”
In “Orange Is The New Barack,” The Capitol Steps promise to put the MOCK in Democracy to showcase the craziest post-election you’ve ever seen. If you’ve ever wanted to see Hillary Clinton belt a pop hit, or appearances by Jeff Sessions, Rex Tillerson, Kim Jong Un and Pope Francis, this might be the show for you!
