Capitol Steps All New Political Satire at Cranwell
Capitol Steps Bring “90 Minutes of Laughter” All Summer Long
The outrageously funny Capitol Steps bring their political satire and song parodies to Cranwell Resort for the 9th consecutive summer. Fueled by the upcoming 2016 elections, this witty group of performers is gearing up for the best season ever.
Since they began in 1981, the nationally-acclaimed Capitol Steps have recorded over 36 albums including the 2015 "Mock the Vote". The Capitol Steps began as a group of Senate staffers who set out to satirize the very people and places that employed them. They’ve also been featured on NBC, CBS, ABC, and PBS, and can be heard 4 times a year on National Public Radio stations nationwide during their "Politics Takes a Holiday" radio specials.
Convenient pre-show dining is available in the Mansion or at Sloane’s Tavern with the option of outdoor terrace seating overlooking the golf course. After the show, we offer a Lounge Menu in the Mansion Music Room until 11 pm, including a wide selection of international coffees and sumptuous desserts.
