The Rocky Horror Show

When a newly engaged couple, Brad and Janet, innocently set out to visit an old professor, a thunderstorm and a flat-tire lead them to seek help at the castle of the alien, transvestite scientist, Dr. Frank ‘N’ Furter. As Brad and Janet are swept up into Frank ‘N’ Furter’s latest experiment, the night’s misadventures will cause them to question everything they’ve known about themselves, each other and love. This humorous tribute to the classic B Sci-Fi films and horror genre, with an irresistible rock’n’roll score, is a wild ride that no audience will soon forget.

The Capitol Steps: Make America Grin Again

The Capitol Steps, a Washington DC-based comedy troupe that began as a group of Senate Staffers, will present a show based on songs from their current album "Make America Grin Again" in Salt Lake City at The Commonwealth Room on October 23rd, 2018. Two weeks before the election! The Capitol Steps have elevated political satire to an art form. Before The Daily Show, Full Frontal, and The Colbert Report, this Washington, DC-based comedy troupe gave audience laugh cramps with their bipartisan lampooning. The Capitol Steps began in 1981 as a group of Senate staffers who set out to satirize their employers, and haven't let up since. If you've been keeping with the news, you know there's no shortage of material. The troupe is coming back to Salt Lake City with a new show of musical and political comedy. It doesn't matter if you're a Republican or Democrat, a snowflake or a deplorable: neither side is safe from the group that puts the "MOCK" in Democracy! Tickets: https://ticketf.ly/2NbPya5
