We’re throwing our hat in the ring — meaning, we’re joining the nationwide sensation that is a bevy of staged-readings and adaptations of the Report on the Investigation into Russian Interference in the 2016 Presidential Election, better known as The Mueller Report. We’ll present a free 24 hour reading of the full text from August 9th until completion on the night of August 10th. Readers will include Neo-Futurists and other members of the artistic community, social activists and political figures, and everyone and anyone else who wants to help read 448 pages of the 21st century’s most talked-about account by a special counsel.
