Alyssa Milano, Annette Bening and Jason Alexander are among the Hollywood figures who are joining together to participate in a livestreamed stage play based on the Mueller Report.

The play, dubbed “The Investigation,” will take place on Monday night at 9:00 p.m. ET. The 10-part show is spearheaded by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Robert Schenkkan and will feature a number of top performers, including Kevin Kline, John Lithgow, Frederick Weller, Ben McKenzie, Michael Shannon, Noah Emmerich, Justin Long, Gina Gershon, Wilson Cruz, Joel Grey, Kyra Sedgwick, Alfre Woodard, Piper Perabo, Zachary Quinto and Aidan Quinn.

“The Investigation” is being produced by Abigail Disney, Susan Disney Lord and Timothy Disney and presented by Law Works, an organization that “engages bipartisan voices and educates the public on the importance of the rule of law, the role of the special counsel in the justice system, and the integrity of our judicial institutions,” according to its website.

“We must hold this president accountable,” a Law Works donation page, linked to its announcement of the live stage play, said.

“The Mueller Report represents a turning point in our democracy — it establishes probable cause that a sitting president of the United States committed crimes and that President Trump’s campaign knew the Russian government attacked our elections to help the President win.”

The report, released in its entirety in April, found no evidence of organized collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia and declined to indict the president on obstruction of justice charges.

Milano, one of the president’s fiercest critics in the entertainment world, tweeted on Monday that the Mueller Report established that President Trump “committed crimes and that the president’s campaign not only knew Russia wanted them to win, but welcomed it.” She invited the president to stream the show, since “we all know you haven’t read” the Mueller Report.

If you’d like to watch the live production tonight, you can go here. The hashtag #TheInvestigation is also being used on Twitter, if you feel like talking about it.
