The award-winning musical satire group Capitol Steps returns to Cranwell Resort, Spa and Golf Club in the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts performing from July 4 to August 31. Since they began in 1981, the Capitol Steps have recorded over 34 albums including their just released "How to Succeed in Congress without Really Lying."

They’ve also been featured on NBC, CBS, ABC, and PBS, and can be heard 4 times a year on National Public Radio stations nationwide during their "Politics Takes a Holiday" radio specials.

Capitol Steps’ 90-minute shows will be performed in Cranwell’s Olmsted Manor at 8pm, nightly except Tuesdays. The resort offers convenient pre-show dining from 4.30 – 6:30 at its Wine Spectator Award Winning restaurant in the Gilded Age Mansion or a casual a la carte menu at Sloane’s Tavern, where diners have the option of outdoor seating with views of the golf course.
