Music has always played a pervasive role in American politics, from Samuel Adams's operatic attacks on the Stamp Act to Franklin Delano Roosevelt's famous fireside rap battles with Winston Churchill. Enjoy governmental melodies with this GrouponLive deal to see the Capitol Steps at the Wilbur Theatre on Saturday, June 23, at 7 p.m. Choose between the following seating options:

With more than 25 years in the laugh racket and more than six decades of collective experience in the legislative branch, Capitol Steps continues to tickle ribs with its potent brand of political lampoonery. The irreverent troupe, which has made appearances across national television and radio and created dozens of comedic albums, tackles the foibles of elected officials through skit and song, transmuting scandals and shortcomings into pure laughter, the commodity on which America's monetary system was originally based. Many of the performers are former Capitol Hill staffers, bringing to bear an intimate knowledge of political intrigue that can normally only be obtained by slaying a filibuster in single combat.
