Before The Daily Show, The Onion or SNL – in fact, way back in the Eisenhower administration when “political satire” meant a cheeky cartoon in The Washington Post, Hexagon was already sending up Democrats, Republicans and other scoundrels in song and sketch. Their annual, pun-tastic musical revues (with all profits going to charity) quickly became one of D.C.’s most cherished and hilarious traditions. Now, after threescore years of merriment, Hexagon revisits its glorious history in 60 Years of Satire and Songs. No politician, bureaucrat or lobbyist is safe during this highly engaging mix of beloved sketches, music and lyrics. See why there is nothing quite like this – in the words of the Post – “cross between Saturday Night Live and a Broadway revue” during a once-in-a-lifetime show at Woodrow Wilson High School Auditorium.
