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. If you've ever wanted to see Barack Obama sing a show tune, Donald Trump sing a rock song and Vladimir Putin dance shirtless, this is the show for you. The Steps' stage show features numerous song parodies and skits, and the cast even includes some former Congressional staffers, whose firsthand experience helps make the jokes zing that much more. 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.

Gilbert and Sullivan are masters of comedy, and the "The Mikado" stands as one of their most popular and well-crafted operettas. Set in a fictional Japanese town where flirting is a serious legal infraction, "The Mikado" tells the story of a wandering minstrel who falls for Yum-Yum, a beautiful young woman who is betrothed to wed another. Of course the emperor decrees that heads must roll. In classic Gilbert and Sullivan fashion, complications, merriment and hilarity ensue. An intelligent satire on British society, the faraway setting allowed Gilbert and Sullivan to slyly mask their clever commentary on social restrictions and government stupidities. See this fun-filled, family-oriented 70-minute re-imagination of "The Mikado" by Chicago-based company The Hypocrites. Expect zany fun as 10 actors sing (and play instruments too!) the show's lovely, lilting songs with a folk/pop edge. [less-]
