NEW YORK CITY: Have you read the Mueller report? Now you don’t have to; you can let more than than 100 theatre artists read it for you this weekend, at a live performance of the entire text of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Report on the Investigation into Russian Interference in the 2016 Presidential Election. The event, under the title Filibustered and Unfiltered: America Reads the Mueller Report, will begin on June 1 at 8 p.m. at the Arc, a music venue in Long Island City, Queens—and wrap 24 hours later.
The readers, all volunteers, comprise theatre artists and producers, including Elena Araoz, Joanne Akalaitis, Loren Amor, Heidi Armbruster, Mary Bacon, Regina Bain, Michael Barakiva, Courtney Baron, John Belitsky, Kristen Blush, Mark Bly, McCaleb Burnett, Dan Butler, Oliver Butler, Adrienne Campbell-Holt, Sari Cane, Karyn Casl, Sarita Choudhury, Roger Danforth, Eisa Davis, Stephen DeRosa, Crystal Dickinson, Harris Doran, Annie Dorsen, Ned Eisenberg, Oskar Eustis, Ramona Floyd, Gia Forakis, Will Frears, Jackson Gay, Eric Gilde, Jacqueline Goldfinger, Michael Gotch, Elizabeth Grobel, John Gromada, Gordon Haber, Anne Hamburger, Rebecca Hart, Karen Hartman, Frank Harts, Philip Himberg, Robert Honeywell, Alex Hurt, Dina Janis, Julia Jordan, Melanie Joseph, Abigail Katz, Anne Kauffman, Antoinette LaVecchia, Todd London, Flo Low, Michele Lowe, Robert Lunney, Taylor Mac, Eden Malyn, Ana Margineanu, CarmenMaria Martinez, Dakin Matthews, John McDermott, Molly McDowell, Lisa McNulty, Maria Mileaf, Winter Miller, Steven Padla, Lucas Papaelias, Christian Parker, Raphael Peacock, Neil Pepe, Wendell Potter, Ken Prestininzi, Carolynn Richer, Jenna Ricker, Glynis Rigsby, Laila Robins, Nicole Rodenburg, J.T.
