Back in the swingin' 60s, charming yet doltish Francis has just been fired from his British pop band. Soon, he finds himself with two jobs and two new bosses (one a small-time gangster and the other an upper-class criminal) who happen to be connected to each other in wildly improbable ways. Mistaken identities, outrageous farce, love triangles and inspired lunacy ensue.

Get ready for a rollicking romp through a swirl of cross-dressing twins, dead fiancés, crooked lawyers and general buffoonery backed by a score that pays homage to rockabilly and a certain Fab Four.

With jokes aimed at both ends of the political spectrum -- and pretty much all of the middle, too -- musical-comedy group The Capitol Steps has been eliciting laughs at democracy's expense since 1981.

This legendary troupe's recorded more than 30 albums, and their radio specials are featured on NPR stations nationwide four times a year, but there's nothing like experiencing their cutting-edge comedy live at DC's Ronald Reagan Building.
