“Presented by the UA Hillel Foundation, The Capitol Steps began as a group of Senate staffers who set out to satirize the very people and places that employed them. The group was born in December, 1981 when some staffers for Senator Charles Percy were planning entertainment for a Christmas party. Their first idea was to stage a nativity play, but in the whole Congress they couldn’t find three wise men or a virgin. So, they decided to dig into the headlines of the day, and they created song parodies & skits which conveyed.”
Carolyn’s note: As a former U.S. Senate staffer (legislative aide) to the late U.S. Senator Daniel Inouye (D – Hawaii), this sounds like either a bad dream or a blast from the past. Working on Capitol Hill was definitely a unique, eye-opening experience for me, a young lawyer at that time. And my Arabic female housemate worked for the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee (and yes, our land line phone was bugged and there were no cell phones at that time, thankfully).

starring Robert Shaw and the Lonely Street Band at the Fox Tucson Theatre, 17 W. Congress St. 2 p.m. on Sunday August 9.
Every August, Elvis fans all over the world gather to honor the memory of their favorite legend on the anniversary of his passing, and Robert Shaw and the Lonely Street Band are proud to play a part in that tradition. The King of Rock and Roll has come to be defined by three distinct eras of his career: the young rockabilly days of “That’s All Right, Mama” and “Heartbreak Hotel”, the black-leather clad rocker of the ’68 Comeback Special, and the years spent headlining Las Vegas and touring the United States with hits including “Suspicious Minds” and “Burning Love.” This one-of-a-kind concert production celebrates the best known tunes from those three phases of Elvis’ career with authentic costumes and top-notch musicians. Don’t miss the one salute to Elvis that has it all, your chance to “Remember The King!”
