The Capitol Steps

  • A Capitol Idea: A group of Senate staffers were planning a show for a Christmas party in 1981. Their idea: dig into the headlines and pull out enough material for skits and song parodies. More than 30 years later, they’re still finding plenty of fuel for poking fun at Washington.
  • A Capitol History: Combined, the group has more than 25 members (who’ve collectively worked in the House and Senate for more than 60 years). They’ve unleashed 30 albums, including 2015’s Mock the Vote, and they’ve been featured on NBC, ABC, and CBS.
  • “The Capitol Steps”: Their name comes from a 1981 political scandal, in which Representative John Jenrette allegedly had relations with his wife on the steps of the U.S. Capitol building.
  • The Capitol Way: The troupe 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.
  • The Capitol Two-Steppers: bi-partisan hits such as “How Do You Solve a Problem Like Crimea” and “Ain’t No Pipeline, Now It’s Gone”
  • A Capitol Tradition: Every year, the troupe appears twice on NPR stations nationwide during their Politics Takes a Holiday specials.

Bergen Performing Arts Center

In 2004—on a mission to bolster its community’s wellspring of creativity and education—the nonprofit Bergen Performing Arts Center took over the former John Harms Center, an art-deco-style movie and vaudeville palace built in 1922. Today, in the same antique theater where Frank Capra screened his first car chase, the venue hosts 150 yearly events that bring dance, music, and theatrical productions to an estimated 250,000 annual audience members. Networks such as HBO, PBS, and MTV all have filmed international broadcasts on the stage, which has seen the likes of Diana Krall, Heart, and ZZ Top.
