Stapitol Ceps

Those in attendance last week might understand our headline posted above, but for those that missed the Capitol Steps, I strongly suggest visiting their website and the "Lirty Dies" section in particular.

During the last part of their program, a Capitol Steps member went on an extremely funny rant about the current political scene and national news headlines. The bit was made laugh out loud funny (my editorial), by the "Lirty Dies" application.

What is "Lirty Dies" you ask. Lirty Dies are what you get when you mix your basic national scandal with word-initialization-rejuxtaposition closely following the underlying precepts of harmony, alliteration and innuendo.

A couple of facts we learned about the Capitol Steps that we learned backstage last week:

  • There are enough troupe members (29) at the Capitol Steps to employ four to five full casts every night of the year.

  • Last year the average cast member was on the road 224 days out of the year.

  • All Capitol Steps cast members live on the East Coast in and around the Washington D.C. area.
