The Capitol Steps have been a Washington, DC institution for over 30 years - providing a unique blend of musical and political comedy to our Nation's Capitol and more. Each show consists of tasteful lampooning guaranteed to leave both sides of the political spectrum laughing. The troupe started in 1981, when John McCain was only 63 years old! Since then, they have appeared on The Today Show, Nightline, CBS Evening News and more.
Their show is constantly changing, strenuously bi-partisan, and includes songs and humor about everything in the news. If you've ever wanted to see Barack Obama sing a show tune, Nancy Pelosi sing a rock song, or New Jersey Governor Chris Christie do a classical ballet - this might just be the show for you! Tickets available now.

Most people who experience cardiac arrest at home, work or in a public location die because they don't receive immediate CPR from someone on the scene. As a bystander, don't be afraid. Your actions can only help. When calling 911, you will be asked for your location. Be specific, especially if you’re calling from a mobile phone as that is not associated with a fixed address. Answering the dispatcher’s questions will not delay the arrival of help.
How to give Hands- Only CPR If you see a teen or adult suddenly collapse, call 9-1-1 and push hard and fast in the center of the chest to the beat of the classic disco song "Stayin' Alive." CPR can more than double a person's chances of survival, and "Stayin' Alive" has the right beat for Hands-Only CPR.
TAKE A MINUTE TO LEARN HOW TO SAVE A LIFE Watch the short demo video. Visit heart.org/handsonlycpr to watch the Hands-Only CPR instructional video and share it with the important people in your life. You can also find a CPR class near you.
NOTE: The AHA still recommends CPR with compressions and breaths for infants and children and victims of drowning, drug overdose, or people who collapse due to breathing problems.
