I attended this extraordinary performance last night at the magnificent Riverside Church on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Annette Bening is the host. John Lithgow is insanely good as Donald Trump, Kevin Kline is a serious Robert Mueller. The rest of the cast includes Joel Grey, Jason Alexander, Alyssa Milano, Gina Gershon, Aidan Quinn, Alfre Woodard, Michael Shannon and others whom you’ll recognize. They were each excellent, although Lithgow had the showy role– Trump– and really was exceptional.
I’ll have more in the morning.
EXCLUSIVE: I will tell you that this was such a success that there will be repeated live performances in Washington DC and Los Angeles.
The script was distilled in 6 days from the massive Mueller Report by the great Robert Schenkkan, who wrote “Hacksaw Ridge” for the movies, “Friday Night Lights” for TV and “All the Way” for Broadway. Amazing job.
