One way to make the 448-page Mueller report more accessible to the general public? Turn it into live entertainment.

On Monday night 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. The titles were:

Act One: President Trump Asked the FBI Director to Shut Down the Investigation Into National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.

Act Two: President Trump Said He Fired FBI Director Comey Because of the Russia Investigation.
