Capitol Steps
Returning for their ninth 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, they never fail to find humor in the latest headlines, scandals and videos. Given today’s gridlock, a Capitol Steps show may be the only thing capable of winning bipartisan support!

Wine Country
Acoustic guitarist Brian Gore and renowned illustrator Bill Russell bring the beauty and dynamic history of California’s Wine Country to life, setting music against a backdrop of still life landscapes, animation, and digital drawing. Known as a “poet of the guitar,” Gore’s music evokes stories and moods, as Russell creates a feast for the eyes using a myriad of visual styles to express a virtual sense of place.

A Twist of Lemmon
Chris Lemmon’s one-man show has taken the country by storm. Told entirely in his father’s voice with music to set the stage, the show explores this unique, yet universal father/son journey. A story of superstardom, divorce and separation, it reflects their ability to finally become the very best of friends. Combining his own compositions with some of the greatest music of the era, Lemmon tells a heart-wrenching, ultimately heart-warming, story that will make you laugh, cry, and then laugh some more.
