May 7-25, 2014
This musical is based on the 1995 Gregory Maguire novel Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, a parallel novel of the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz and L. Frank Baum's classic story The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. The musical is told from the perspective of the witches of the Land of Oz; its plot begins before and continues after Dorothy's arrival in Oz from Kansas and includes several references to the 1939 film and Baum's novel. Wicked tells the story of two unlikely friends, Elphaba (the Wicked Witch of the West) and Glinda (the Good Witch of the North), who struggle through opposing personalities and viewpoints, rivalry over the same love-interest, reactions to the Wizard's corrupt government, and, ultimately, Elphaba's public fall from grace.
The Capitol Steps
Oct 6, 2013 at 6:30 pm
The Capitol Steps began as a group of Senate staffers who set out to satirize the very people and places that employed them. In the years that followed, many of the Steps ignored the conventional wisdom "Don't quit your day job”! The Capitol Steps troupe is a favorite in the Washington, D.C. social circuit and their reputation for skewering the political right and left with equal glee brings chuckles, rave reviews, guffaws, and bipartisan grins all around. Full of parody’s performed in complete character (imagine Obama sitting only feet away, but with an off hair-day) you’ll love hearing recognizable tunes, with unfamiliar words!
