Capitol Steps returns for 9th summer at Cranwell


LENOX — For the ninth consecutive summer, Cranwell Spa & Golf Resort is once again hosting the award-winning musical satire group The Capitol Steps for a limited run of performances through Sept. 2.

The troupe is the first to perform on Cranwell's new Harvest Barn stage, a 220-seat venue, off Route 20, opposite Cranwell's main entrance.

The Capitol Steps' 90-minute show will be performed nightly at 8 excluding Tuesdays.

This year's show is largely based on songs from The Capitol Steps' current album "What to Expect When You're Electing," featuring tunes that give a comedic nod to some of our most pressing political issues: "Ain't No Pipeline, Now It's Gone," "Hello, Is it Mitt You're Looking For?" and "We Warm the World" among them.

The Capitol Steps began as a group of congressional staffers who set out to satirize the very people who employed them. Now in its 35th year, the show has since evolved to feature 26 actors and five pianists, who stage shows across the United States.

Ticket information is available by phone at (413) 881-1636, or online at
