Hollywood’s A-list are putting a new spin on “political theatre” in a soon-to-be-live-streamed reading of the Mueller report, dubbed The Investigation: A Search for the Truth in Ten Acts.
Such big-ticket stars as Mark Hamill, Sigourney Weaver and Julia Louis-Dreyfus are set to participate in an adaptation of the 448-page behemoth, “written” by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Robert Schenkkan.
The production, which begins tonight at 9 p.m. ET, is presented by LawWorks, an organization that, according to its website, “engages bipartisan voices and educates the public on the importance of the rule of law, the role of the special counsel in the justice system, and the integrity of our judicial institutions.” Or in other words, they popularize the findings of the Mueller report, which were pretty dang juicy, if not incriminating.
The complete cast list is big on heavy-hitters, with a lineup that also includes Alyssa Milano, Annette Bening, Kevin Kline, John Lithgow, Frederick Weller, Ben McKenzie, Michael Shannon, Noah Emmerich, Justin Long, Jason Alexander, Gina Gershon, Wilson Cruz, Joel Grey, Kyra Sedgwick, Alfre Woodard, Piper Perabo, Zachary Quinto and Aidan Quinn.
