The Capitol Steps, "Orange Is The New Barack" - Nov. 25, 2017 at 3pm & 7pm
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.
The troupe will offer its newest show, "Orange Is The New Barack," a brand-new vaudeville-like comedy show with a mix of song and standup, lampooning our modern political leaders, taking on the major issues of the day and sharing songs from the group’s newest album, “Orange Is The New Barack”.
The shows will provide such treats as “Scaramucci the Moocher” (parody of “Minnie The Moocher”), "Small Hands" (sung by Melania, a parody of Pointer Sister's "Slow Hand"), "Tweet Tweet" (a parody of "Rockin' Robin," inspired by the President's tweet storms), "Don't Know Much About History" (with Betsy DeVos crooning "Don't know much about history…Don't know much biology") and "Putin on the Blitz," based on "Puttin' on the Ritz," in which Vladimir explains his philosophy on asserting power ("...Russian force I must assert – don't make me take off my shirt – you'll say 'tsk tsk' – Putin is a risk...")
