      The Capitol Steps – The Lyin’ Kings

      America’s premiere political-musical-satire troupe returns to the Crest Theatre. The troupe will offer its newest show, The Lyin’ Kings. Drawing its humor from today’s headlines and twitter feeds, The Lyin’ Kings includes the latest songs about the Democratic primary candidates (“76 Unknowns”) and the newest late-night thoughts from President Trump (“Tweet It”). No one knows who 2020 will bring to the forefront, but whether it’s Mayor Pete Buttigieg or Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Capitol Steps will rhyme it. The show, in formation, may serve up such delicacies as Donald Trump singing a rock song, Bernie Sanders singing a show tune or Vladimir Putin dancing shirtless. You’ll never know whether Nancy Pelosi, William Barr or Kim Jong-un might appear onstage together in a musical number. There may even be a few golden oldies from the Obama and Bush eras. The Capitol Steps puts the “MOCK” in democracy! Originally made up of congressional staffers, the past decade has seen the “Steps” harvest the talents of finely tuned musical theater professionals from around the country. They were nominated for the Drama Desk Awards of 2007 for “Outstanding Lyrics.” The Capitol Steps shows, being headline-driven, are unpredictable, so the complete song list and cast list can’t be forecast in advance. The troupe pounces on breaking news events in order to keep the show fresh.
