So happy we went tonight. Great show. Setting is much better than years ago. Highly recommend. Need to get there when the doors open because seats are first come, first served.

Capital Steps is political comedy. The comedy is set to songs. Very entertaining. They didnt spare anyone from trump, Pelosi, Obama, Sanders, Hillary and the list goes on. Very entertaining. Given the current politics there is no lack of material.

Clever writing and experienced actors brought out the funny side of current politics. Fast paced. Note that there are no reserved seats so arriving early is a big bonus as far as seating.

The comedic political team from Washington DC spend their summers in the Berkshires. The show is fast paced humor in song poking fun at politicians and topical issues.

So funny! So witty! So GOOD! The cast is so quick-witted. They create new material as fast as the current events occur. I laughed so much! One of the performers went off-script, which caused the other performer to start laughing, which made us laugh even...More

The Capitol Steps in a comedy group that summers at the Cranwell Resort in Lenox in the Berkshires. They are extremely funny- but very liberal leaning. Always a great time. There is no reserved seating (and the seats aren't that comfortable) and doors open 1/2...More

What a talented group of people! They have wonderful musical and speaking voices. The mannerisms are down pat! The music is wonderful-the lyricist catches every nuance! Really..."A Must See!" You'll see something that has occurred on the news THAT day!!!

Loose chairs. But they've tried to pack too many in there, so people keep moving them to try to get comfortable. The rows they had set up were gone before the show even started.
