From three-time Tony® winner and Hamilton choreographer, Andy Blankenbuehler, comes an inspiring new American musical that explodes with infectious music and high-octane, heart-stopping dancing.

It’s 1945, and six soldiers return from war to a changed nation. When NBC announces a national competition to find the nation’s next great musical superstars, they form a band unlike any the nation has ever seen. Along the way, they discover the power of music to face the impossible, find their voice, and finally feel like they have a place to call home.

“The show defies you not to be moved” (Time Out New York).

The Capitol Steps

THE CAPITOL STEPS

Saturday, August 24, 2019 • 8:00 PM

Political satire is an art form that can be traced back as far as the ancient Greek dramatist Aristophanes (c. 446 – c. 386 BC). Forbidden by some world regimes, political satire is alive and thriving in the United States of America. Enjoy what others can’t as a troupe of Congressional staffers-turned-comedians travel the U.S. satirizing the very people and places that once employed them. They’ve been featured on NBC, CBS, ABC, PBS and have performed for five presidents. They bill themselves as equal opportunity offenders.
