Senator Barbara Boxer may have left the U.S. Senate in 2017, after representing California for 24 years, but she’s still quite politically active with her PAC For a Change. As a way of gearing up and raising money for the Democrats in 2020, she and her PAC are holding a one-night performance of a new original play called—we kid you not—You Can’t Make This Sh*t Up! Selected Readings from the Mueller Report. At the Saban Theater on October 21, sections of special counsel Bob Mueller’s now-infamous report will be read aloud by a cast that includes Billy Porter, Debra Messing, Laraine Newman, Tony Goldwyn (that’s right, the president from Scandal), Paul Reiser, Sharon Osbourne, Ernie Hudson, comedian John Fugelsang, and others. But here’s the highlight: Larry David will provide the narration.
The so-called “play” will focus on Part A of Mueller’s report, which lays out Russian interference in the election, shows connections between Russians and members of Trump’s campaign, and warns that this interference continues today.
General admission tickets start at only $25 and there are still tickets available in various sections for $35, $100, and $250, and also at the co-host ($2,500) and host levels ($5,000), which include entry to the star-studded after party. All proceeds go to PAC For a Change’s efforts to defend the Democratic House majority, attain a Democratic majority in the Senate, and of course, defeat Trump.
Veteran theater producer Suzi Dietz is producing the play with Steve Saporito. Dietz and Saporito were two of the producers on The Investigation: A Search for the Truth in 10 Acts, by Robert Schenkkan, which was read by an all-star cast at Riverside Church in New York City on June 24 and focused on the acts of obstruction enumerated in Part B of the Mueller report.
