IN oRBit: D.C. SATIRE & THE BASIE’S BOOKER

Noworbiting_icon

In conjunction with tonight’s reopening of the Count Basie Theatre after four months in mothballs, today’s edition of Red Bank oRBit contains a two-fer:

• We’ve got an interview with a Mark Eaton, a 15-year Capitol Steps veteran (and former lobbyist) who dishes on the comedy troupe’s Friday-night show and what happens after the Nov. 4 bubble deflates…

• And, if you’re wondering how acts like the Capitol Steps, Rufus Wainwright, the B-52s and Patton Oswalt wind up on the Basie’s boards, check out our interview with Numa Saisselin, who not only runs the theater as its CEO, but personally books every act.

We’re oRBit, and we approve this message…
