A handful of actors are set to perform a live streamed telling of the Mueller report Monday evening, as part of an education campaign aimed at bringing more attention to what was the principal findings of said report.
John Lithgow, Mark Hamill, and Annette Bening are among some of the stars who will be reading excerpts from the investigation compiled by former special counsel Robert Mueller. They’ll be joined by other stars, including Justin Long, Michael Shannon, Piper Perabo, Sigourney Weaver, Zachary Quinto, Kevin Kline, Alyssa Milano, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus, the Chicago Tribune reported.
Many other actors are set to perform as well, All Arts reported.
The project is put together by Robert Schenkkan, a playwright, screenwriter, and actor himself who won the Pulitzer Prize in 1992.
The live stream will air starting at 9 p.m. EST, and will be performed in front of a live studio audience, available to watch on the Law Works website.
🚨 Actors and performers are coming together tonight for a stage adaptation of the Mueller report. The best part? The whole thing is streamed live, for free.

The non-profit group states on its about page that it “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.”
Mueller spoke for the first time about his report in public on the day he announced he’d be leaving the special counsel’s office, at the end of May. At that time, his words echoed what his report had said — mainly, that in spite of what President Donald Trump has said about the report, there wasn’t anything within it that exonerated him of wrongdoing.
“If we had had confidence the president clearly did not commit a crime we would have said so,” Mueller said, per reporting from Politico.
Mueller also explained at that time that he was barred from charging Trump with an indictment, due to Department of Justice policies that restricted him from doing so. Some have suggested that Mueller’s report, which details at least 10 possible instances of obstruction of justice by the president, is, in fact, an impeachment referral for Congress to consider taking up.
