On a Monday night in June of 2019, in front of an audience, John Lithgow, Annette Bening, Kevin Kline, Kyra Sedgwick, Alyssa Milano, Michael Shannon, Alfre Woodard, Joel Grey and more took the stage at New York's Riverside Church for a live reading of "The Investigation: A Search for the Truth in Ten Acts." Adapted by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Robert Schenkkan from former special counsel Robert S. Mueller III's report, the play focused primarily on Mueller's findings around whether President Donald Trump obstructed justice. The 10 acts of the play each had a title corresponding to an act of possible obstruction committed by Trump.
