Having trouble getting excited reading the Mueller Report’s 448 pages written in dense c governmentese and legal-speak? Robert Mueller III whose name is on the report gave a ten-minute press release and told the audience all they had to do was read the report. Members of Congress say the same thing. Keep in mind that most of those tossing their advice out lightly are attorneys. For the rest of us, there are alternatives.

Some of America’s top actors have taken on the project. Starring one night and one night only, these people will perform a live reading of Mueller’s report. On June 24, people can just sit back and cast members such as Annette Bening, John Lithgow, and Kevin Kline will read it to them in a live presentation.

The Investigation: A Search for the Truth in Ten Acts will be performed in front of a live audience in New York. It will also be live-streamed here via Law Works.

The Play was adapted to the stage by Pulitzer Prize-Winner playwright, screenwriter, and actor Robert Schenkkan, according to The Variety Magazine:

‘(He) won a Pulitzer Prize in 1992 for The Kentucky Cycle and a Tony award for All the Way in 2014. He has also received Emmy nominations for his HBO limited series The Pacific in 2010. The Executive Producers are Susan Disney Lord, Abigail Disney, and Timothy Disney. LawWorks is presenting the play.’

The Broadway World reported that other cast members included:

‘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, with additional participation by Sigourney Weaver, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Mark Hamill and more.’

Law Works is a nonprofit that engages bipartisan voices. In addition, it educates the public regarding the Mueller Investigation into the Russians cyber attack on the U.S. presidential elections and Donald Trump’s clear-cut and continuing obstruction of justice. Law Works promotes the ideal that no one is above the law. In addition, the organization:

‘…promotes the work of Congressional Oversight and brings experts to the public debate in a variety of ways to elevate the public dialogue above today’s shouting match.’

This was not the only attempt to make the Mueller Report palatable. Members of the House of Representatives took turns reading it throughout the entire night.

Other Hollywood stars have come together to enlighten the public regarding how important the Mueller Report findings are. After all, the Russians attacked the United States, and Donald Trump is doing nothing about it. These stars came together to perform a six-minute video showing the investigation’s key points, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“‘Robert De Niro, Rosie Perez, Martin Sheen, Sophia Bush, Stephen King, Laurence Fishburne, George Takei, Jonathan Van Ness, and Rob Reiner'” created a spot video for that very purpose.

Reiner also directed it. Sheen, who played President Josiah Bartlet on The West Wing, started if off. The stars also show how Attorney General William Barr lied about what was within the report.

In the way of thoughtful concise government attorneys, Mueller said in his brief press conference:

‘…if we had had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so. We did not, however, make a determination as to whether the president did commit a crime.’

These actors’ weet gives us a small sampling:

‘Exclusive: De Niro, @robreiner, @SophiaBush, @StephenKing, @jvn, and more are cutting through the Trump administration’s lies about the Mueller report’

Reiner’s video shows clearly:

‘They believe he committed a crime.’

There is also a Facebook page that presents the Mueller Report in “bite-sizes.” These quick, two-minute reads interpret the report in normal English for busy people. The Mueller Report Adventures: In Bite-Sizes uncovers what is essentially a compelling spy mystery.  Interestingly enough, these Mueller Bite-Sizes can be read in any order.
