Eventbrite - Capitol Steps: The Pride Takeover

Ticketing: 

  • Tickets can be picked up at the Capitol Steps box office in the Ronald Reagan Building (1300 Pennsylvania Ave. NW) on the day of the show as soon as it opens. We'd encourage you to get there early so you can beat the rush and avoid waiting in line. 
  • Seating is with TWC in the orchestra section, rows J through M. Tickets are normally $40.25 including fees.
  • If you’re coming solo and want to sit with other TWC members who are showing up stag, just join the "Day 1 Club and Friends" group, and you'll be mixed up with other TWCers like a tasty bucket of movie theater popcorn. 
  • If you’re coming with friends but want to buy all of the tickets at once, just hit “Participate as an individual” and select the number tickets you want. Just remember, you’ll be the person who needs to pick up the tickets for all of your friends. 
  • If you’re coming with a group that wants to sit together, but you don't want to buy all of the tickets yourself, hit "Create a group." Your friends will be able to join your group, and you'll all be seated together. Just make sure your friends get their tickets before we sell out!

The week of the performance we'll send you information about a TWC pre-party nearby, starting at 6:30pm so you can meet the rest of your Guerrilla Queer Theater friends.

About the Capitol Steps:

The Capitol Steps began as a group of Senate staffers who set out to satirize the very people and places that employed them.

The group was born in December 1981 when staffers for Senator Charles Percy were planning entertainment for a Christmas party. Their first idea was to stage a nativity play, but in the whole Congress they couldn't find three wise men or a virgin. So, they decided to dig into the headlines of the day, and they created song parodies & skits which conveyed a special brand of satirical humor.

In the years that followed, many of the Steps ignored the conventional wisdom ("Don't quit your day job!"), and although not all of the current members of the Steps are former Capitol Hill staffers, taken together the performers have worked in a total of eighteen Congressional offices and represent 62 years of collective House and Senate staff experience.

Since they began, the Capitol Steps have recorded over 30 albums, including their latest, How to Succeed in Congress Without Really Lying. They've 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.
