Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s 448-page report has had people talking since he turned it over to Attorney General Barr back in March. This week it’s making headlines again.
The report has been turned into a 10-act play that stars 18 of Hollywood’s biggest stars. Those stars include Annette Bening, Kevin Kline, John Lithgow, Alfre Woodard, Justin Long, and Alyssa Milano.
On Monday evening the stars did a live performance of “The Investigation: A Search for the Truth in 10 Acts,” a stage production that is based on the Mueller report.
The performance was live streamed by Law Works and was completely free. Law Works is an organization dedicated to defending the nonpartisan role of the Department of Justice.
Robert Schenkkan wrote the 10-act play and it is billed on Law Works website as “a historic live play ripped from the pages of the Mueller report.” Schenkkan is a Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning screenwriter and playwright.
The all-star anti-Trump cast also includes Ben McKenzie, Michael Shannon, Jason Alexander, Kyra Sedgwick, Piper Perabo, and Zachary Quinto. It also included special guests like Sigourney Weaver, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Mark Hamill.
“The Investigation: A Search for the Truth in 10 Acts” began live streaming at 9 p.m. ET on the Law Works website. It could also be viewed on the organization’s Facebook and Instagram pages.
The play was made into 10 acts because Mueller’s report included 10 times that Donald Trump tried to obstruct justice, covered up the truth or instructed someone to create fake documents.
The 10-act play “shows that President Trump likely obstructed justice and that President Trump’s campaign not only knew Russia wanted them to win but welcomed it,” Law Works said in the statement.
The 10 acts of the play each had a title corresponding to an act of possible obstruction committed by Trump. The titles were:
Act One: President Trump Asked the FBI Director to Shut Down the Investigation Into National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.
Act Two: President Trump Said He Fired FBI Director Comey Because of the Russia Investigation.
Act Three: President Trump Ordered White House Counsel Don McGahn to Fire Robert Mueller.
Act Four: President Trump Attempted to Curtail the Special Counsel Investigation.
Act Five: President Trump Prevented the Public Disclosure of Evidence.
Act Six: President Trump Wanted Attorney General Sessions to Unrecuse From the Russia Investigation.
Act Seven: President Trump Directed White House Counsel Don McGahn to Create False Documents That Covered Up the Truth From Investigators.
Act Eight: President Trump Tried to Discourage Campaign Chairman Paul Manafort and National Security Advisor Michael Flynn From Cooperating With the Mueller Investigation.
Act Nine: President Trump Encouraged Michael Cohen to Lie About Trump Tower Moscow.
Act Ten: President Trump Tried to Get Longtime Lawyer Michael Cohen Not to Cooperate With the Investigation.
The live performance was a one-night-only event that was performed in front of a live audience in New York. Those who could not attend could sign up on the Law Works website to watch it live for free.
