Many PBS/NPR listeners are fans of the venerable Capitol Steps, the 28-year-old comedy ensemble that lightly satirizes Washington D.C. political customs and foibles, mostly in song parodies. Started by three Republican congressional staffers in 1981, the group now includes more than two dozen (bipartisan) performers who do shows all around the country. They’ve also performed shows for Presidents Reagan, Bush Sr. and Clinton. The group yuks it up at 6 p.m. at PlayhouseSqure's Ohio Theatre (1511 Euclid Ave.), presented by Townhall of Cleveland. Tickets: $45. Call 216.241.1919 or go to townhallcleveland.org for info. — Anastasia Pantsios
