“Why read the Mueller Report at Arena Stage? As a theater focused on American plays and American stories, the Mueller Report is a far-reaching and intricate American story about D.C. and the people in it,” explains Artistic Director Molly Smith. “This is our city and so many of these events happened here. It’s a community service to read the report with a multiplicity of voices from the world of the arts and politics and everyday citizens. Many people have only heard the report in bits and pieces — this gives them the opportunity to read aloud without comment, listen and make up their own minds. This reading is, in many ways, a democratic act.”
A view of history doesn’t stop at the reading event. Also at Arena Stage that night, Mike Daisey will deliver the 8th of this 18 chapters, A People’s History in the Cradle – more on that here – and Ann, based on the life of legendary Texas Governor Ann Richards, starring Jayne Atkinson, will hold its first performance.
