This performance was ok, but a bit on the dirtier side than I can enjoy. But when they weren't dirty, they were very entertaining!

It is really long to walk up these steps. I won't recommend it for kids under 7 and seniors. Other than that not bad.

Beautiful to look at but poor signs. We had a cab drop us off by the tour area but could not find the entrance. We asked a guard but he told us he did not know. It took seemingly forever to walk to the front with our three little kids. No restroom facilities close by. We had a very difficult... More

In their long run of 30 years, this troupe truly are the best in satirical comedy. We have seen them under multiple regimes and they leave no one untouched. The group we saw this time not only gave us comedy scenes about those in power but also those who wish to be in power. Lirty dies is a standard of... More

We try to see this group once a year and they never disappoint. Truly hilarious. The satire and Washington humor is funny year after year. Ticket prices are soooo reasonable too. Go see them!

It was fun. Liked the fact that they did not pick sides and lampooned everyone. Although the times where it seems they can't keep from laughing at a joke even though they must have done the bit a thousand times..seemd a little put on..But stil was a lot of laughs..Go See it..!!

Hilarious and a lot of fun! An enjoyable evening of political satire. A long running show for a reason and appropriate for DC.

This is a great evening of entertainment. If you are not up on your current events you may not get the jokes. For those that are politically engaged however will find it's humor spot on. The performers were extremely talented and able to transform into playing different character very well. I will definitely go see it again the next time... More

This was the second time we have seen this troupe perform. Once when they were on the road, about 5 years ago. This is their permanent venue and it is very nice and comfortable. Wish there were directions on the outside of the doors as to which doors were open in the evening. Had some difficulty in finding an unlocked... More
