The year was 1981, Reagan was president and a trio of Senate staffers set out to stage a holiday program of songs and skits that parodied the headlines of the day, along with many of their coworkers. And so The Capitol Steps was born, and continues to this day. The group has so far released 30 albums (the latest is Desperate Housemembers) and though not all of the current members are former Capitol Hill staffers, collectively they've worked in 18 congressional offices and total 62 years of House and Senate experience. The Capitol Steps perform at Flat Rock Playhouse Wednesdays-Sundays, Sept. 14-25 at 8 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday. $40. http://www.flatrockplayhouse.org.
