The Capitol Steps bring Musical Political Satire to “THE ART OF AGING”
HOSTED BY THE Jewish Association on Aging
June 11 at the AUGUST WILSON CENTER
PITTSBURGH—Just when you thought the news was too much to take, the Capitol Steps get set to make us laugh at the shenanigans of our leaders, elected and otherwise.
The Capitol Steps headline "The Art of Aging" annual fundraiser, hosted by the Jewish Association on Aging (JAA), 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 11, 2018, on stage at the August Wilson Center, 980 Liberty Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15222.
The Capitol Steps started performing in 1981 when some clever U.S. Senate staffers roasted Reagan-era politics at a holiday party. Now it’s all professional singers and actors who have performed around the world and released more than 40 albums.
Most of the Steps’ performances involve parodies of popular songs, humorously referencing the current political scandals and characters of the day. Knowing their last release title was “Orange is the New Barack,” you can probably guess what the ensemble will be singing about this June.
Proceeds from The Capitol Steps’ performance benefit JAA’s Free Care Fund.
