On July 19, 100+ local actors, journalists, politicians, and community leaders will take over Town Hall’s Forum stage for a complete reading of the Mueller Report.
Members of the Seattle theater community (Brian Faker, Sarah Harlett, and Carl Sander) are partnering with Town Hall for a continuous, marathon reading of the entire 448-page report.
It will take more than 100 readers a total of 24 hours (July 19, 8:00 pm – July 20, 8:00 pm) to present the report as-is, redactions and footnotes included. When asked to comment on the decision to present the un-editorialized report, Harlett noted: “This is not meant to be a dramatization of the report’s findings. We wish to bring the power of the human voice to an essential document that provides invaluable information about Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and the response of President Trump to that interference and the investigations it set in motion.”
The reading is non-partisan, non-dramatized and is not intended as a commentary on Robert Mueller, his team, the report, or its findings.
The reading will take place in Town Hall’s newly renovated Forum space (formerly known as Downstairs). Town Hall has recently completed a $35 million top-to-bottom renovation of its historic building. This event is presented as part of their summer soft-launch preceding the grand reopening Homecoming Festival this September.
The event is free and open to the public. No registration is required and guests can come and go as they see fit throughout the 24-hour period. Donations will be accepted at the door, and all profits will be donated to the Seattle chapter of the ACLU. Voter registration will also be available onsite throughout the reading.
