Worcester, Mass. (PRWEB) November 17, 2015
The Capitol Steps, a Washington, DC-based comedy troupe that began as a group of Senate Staffers, will present a show based on songs from their current album Capitol Steps presents Mock the Vote at The Hanover Theatre on Thursday, November 19, 2015 at 7:30 p.m.
The Capitol Steps have been a Washington, DC institution for over thirty years, providing a unique blend of musical and political comedy to our nation’s capital and more. Each show consists of tasteful lampooning guaranteed to leave both sides of the political spectrum laughing. The troupe started in 1981 when John McCain was only 63 years old. Since then, they have appeared on “The Today Show,” “Nightline,” “CBS Evening News” and, for many years, in specials for National Public Radio.
Their show is constantly changing, strenuously bi-partisan and includes songs about everything in the news, such as “How Do You Solve a Problem Like Crimea,” “Ain’t No Pipeline, Now It’s Gone” and “The iMpossible iWatch.”
If you’ve ever wanted to see Barack Obama sing a show tune, Nancy Pelosi sing a rock song and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie do a classical ballet, this might just be the show for you.

Tickets are available online at TheHanoverTheatre.org, by phone at 877.571.SHOW (7469) or at The Hanover Theatre box office located at 2 Southbridge Street in downtown Worcester.
About The Hanover Theatre
The Hanover Theatre continues to draw over 170,000 patrons annually with world-class performances and headlining acts including Broadway hits (“Les Misérables,” “Jersey Boys,” “Camelot”); comedians (Dave Chappelle, Jay Leno, Daniel Tosh); musical acts (Neil Young, Aretha Franklin, John Legend); and everything in between (“A Christmas Carol,” Maya Angelou, Rudy Giuliani, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre). Consistently ranked by POLLSTAR as one of the Top Theatres in the World, the theatre opened in March of 2008 following a $32 million historic renovation. Over the last seven seasons, the theatre has established its place as a world-class performing arts venue, acting as a catalyst for the economic development of downtown Worcester. In the spring of 2015, the theatre finalized the purchase of a vacant, three-floor former office building with street-level retail space at 551 Main Street. The building will ultimately house office space for theatre administration, function areas, a restaurant on the ground floor and an educational space on the lower level. The building is set to open in 2016.
