Watch Mark Hamill, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Mark Ruffalo Read Portions of the Mueller Report

If, like most people, you haven’t gotten around to reading the entirety of the Mueller report, stars like Mark Ruffalo, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Mark Hamill, and Annette Bening have made it easier to understand the Russia investigation by recording a video of themselves reading aloud the report’s most pertinent passages.

The exclusive video obtained by Variety comes after the actors’ one-night performance on June 24 where they performed a live reading of the selections from the 300-page report for Robert Schenkkan’s stage adaptation, “The Investigation: A Search for the Truth in Ten Acts.” Alongside a stream of the live performance, which featured appearances by Kevin Kline, John Lithgow, Piper Perabo, Michael Shannon, Zachary Quinto, and Sigourney Weaver, the cast recorded a separate off-stage video that highlights the recording’s findings.

“Robert Mueller’s investigation found 10 possible acts of obstruction of justice. Let’s review them one more time…” Bening begins the video. In the remaining minute-and-a-half clip, the actors precede to read aloud the portions that most effectively illustrate Trump’s collusion with Russia leading up to the 2016 election.

The video is in partnership with Law Works, an organization catering to bipartisan voices to make sure that the public is educated on the Mueller investigation among other issues in American politics. In using famous and expert faces in their work, they hope to shed light on important political developments affecting all Americans.

The original live performance came from Pulitzer Prize-winning Schenkkan and was produced by Oscar-nominated producer David Permut (“Hacksaw Ridge”), David Bender and Suzi Dietz. Executive producers are Susan Disney Lord, Abigail Disney, and Timothy Disney.

    Off Broadway Review: 'Little Shop of Horrors'

    With its strains of kitschy doo-wop and its sci-fi B-movie inspirations, the quaint 1982 musical “Little Shop of Horrors” hardly seems a thing of modern-day revivalism, even despite its touches of S&M. Yet this year alone, not only is there an Off Broadway production of the blackly comic “Little Shop” featuring Jonathan Groff of Netflix’s [...]

    “It’s a lot to take in right now,” says Percy Jackson, the teen hero of “The Lightning Thief,” the kid-centric fantasy musical (based on the popular Y.A. novel) that’s now on Broadway after touring the country and playing an Off Broadway run. You could say that’s a bit of an understatement from contemporary teen Percy [...]

    Broadway Review: 'The Rose Tattoo' Starring Marisa Tomei

    “The Rose Tattoo” is what happens when a poet writes a comedy — something strange, but kind of lovely. The same might be said of director Trip Cullman’s production: Strange, if not exactly lovely. Even Marisa Tomei, so physically delicate and expressively refined, seems an odd choice to play the lusty and passionate protagonist, Serafina [...]
