Are you tired of all the mud-slinging and political hoopla that’s in the media? Take a break from all the name-calling of one candidate to another and come laugh at them through the political satire of “The Capitol Steps”. Right off the top, kudos to Howard Breitbart who continually played all the piano music that the actors needed during the performance. There are only five qualified actors who mimic many of the political persons you might have recalled in the news recently and in times gone by, yet they do a magnificent job.
Corey Harris may be the newest member to the group, but his impersonation of President Obama is right on point. Nancy Dolliver, Brad VanGrank Jamie Zemarel, and Tracey Stephens recreate the many personalities with quick costume changes and witty lines. You won’t be bored especially when you hear the tune from “The Young and the Restless” played in the background of one of the skits.
You might also remember to get a written copy of “Lirty Dies” and try to pronounce some of the flip-flopped spoken words.
