WASHINGTON – Not everyone has read the entire 448-page Mueller report. So, a group is planning to hold a celebrity staging of it in ten acts on Monday evening.
Law Works Action, an advocacy group, plans to stage an adaptation of the report called "The Investigation: A Search for the Truth in Ten Acts," written by Robert Schenkkan, a Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning screenwriter and playwright.
A star-studded cast will put on the show. Law Works Action announced that the cast will include the following: Annette Bening, Kevin Kline, John Lithgow, Frederick Weller, Ben Mckenzie, Michael Shannon, Noah Emmerich, Justin Long, Jason Alexander, Gina Gershon, Wilson Cruz, Joel Grey, Alyssa Milano, Kyra Sedgwick, Alfre Woodard, Piper Perabo, Zachary Quinto, and Aidan Quinn.
Sigourney Weaver, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Mark Hamill, and others will also participate in the play.
It will be streamed on Law Works Action's website starting at 9:00 p.m. EDT. The organization aims to make sure the public is educated on the Mueller investigation and other issues in American politics, according to its website.
John Kerry, former Secretary of State and Democratic senator from Massachusetts, posted about the event on Twitter, calling it an "act of public service by these artists."
Special counsel Robert Mueller's report into Russian interference in the 2016 election and his subsequent statement on the investigation has sparked calls for impeachment among House Democrats, who argue that the president committed criminal obstruction of justice during the investigation.
Only one Republican, Rep. Justin Amash, R-Mich., has joined House Democrats in calling for the beginning of impeachment proceedings against Trump.
This show is not the first attempt to stage a contemporary political drama. Earlier this month, conservative advocacy groups put on an adaptation of texts between former FBI employees Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. Politico called the production "Hamilton for the Make America Great Again Crowd."
