Fiddler on the Roof
Winner of 10 Tony Awards in 1965 and still touching audiences worldwide today with its humor, warmth and honesty, 'Fiddler on the Roof' is a musical theatre tradition! Set in the little village of Anatevka, the story centers on Tevye, a poor dairyman, and his five daughters. With the help of a colorful and tight-knit Jewish community, Tevye tries to protect his daughters and instill them with tradition in the face of changing social mores and growing anti-Semitism of Czarist Russia. Rich in historical and ethnic detail, this universal theme cuts across barriers of race, class, nationality and religion, leaving audiences crying tears of laughter, joy and sadness.

The Capitol Steps
Returning for their seventh annual evening of side-splitting political satire, the members of Capitol Steps combine experience on the Hill with musical, acting, improv and sheer comedic talent in an equal opportunity skewering of modern day politics. The only group in America that attempts to be funnier than Congress, Capitol Steps never suffers from a shortage of material, finding humor in the latest headlines, scandals, mis-steps and mis-speaks. Given today’s gridlock, a Capitol Steps show may be the only thing capable of winning bipartisan support!
