We have been going to their Lyric Show in Stuart FL every year thus far, but will no more. We’re disappointed for the first time. What I loved about Capital Steps was their ability to laugh at all sides of politics. They’ve thrown that away...More

Having lived in DC for many years, I have attended--and enjoyed--the Capitol Steps several times. What a disappointment to take family members (for their first visit) over the recent Christmas holiday! I found it to be one-sided, and rather than funny, often mean spirited. Probably...More

This year Dec 31, 2018 the Cap Steps went way down hill. They were extremely biased against our conservatives. Don't go to the show. Seems they are letting their liberal feelings overtake objectivity. The show was disgraceful to say the least.

I have seen the Capital Steps show 7 times previously, and always enjoyed it. This Dec 31, 2018 performance was one sided and filled with sarcasm rather than humor. Few laughs. Don't waste your money on this show.

Show was disappointing, at least half of it was the same show as last year- very funny the frst time, but need to freshen up the whole thing if you want folks to keep coming back

Great for pictures, children and people in shape, like runners and step climbers this is a great place for them. The other people just do a few steps.

If you are Moderate, Republican, Conservative or a Trump supporter don’t give this group another nickel. The whole show is supporting Liberal politics. Totally inappropriate for teens with inappropriate topics.

We go to see the Capitol Steps at least once per administration with our first during Clinton. Well, here we were during the age of Trump and he provided plenty of fodder for laughs. Excellent cast and very spacious venue in the Reagan Building. Be...More

I didn't think it was all that funny, but clearly I am in the minority. I will say that it poked fun at both Democrats and Republicans, so it was not skewed much one way or the other.

I hadn’t seen them in 30 years. They were still great. Very funny. Very talented. Great show. Topical.
