Star Wars fans can look for Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) to make an appearance.

The Mueller report has already found mainstream commercial success.

Robert Mueller's report on Russian meddling in the 2016 US election is getting a star-studded staged reading on Monday.

"The Mueller Report is required reading for every American who cares about defending our democracy", the Law Works Facebook page said.

The play, penned by Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning screenwriter and playwright Robert Schenkkan, was produced - and live streamed - as a one-time event by Law Works, a group that says it's an "advocate for bi-partisan legislation to protect our judicial institutions".

Despite the serious nature of the report, a live audience managed to find some humor in the performance-particularly Lithgow's dramatics and Master of Ceremonies' Joel Grey's drawl.

On its site, Law Works argues that the Mueller report includes 10 instances where President Trump tried to obstruct justice, covered up the truth, and ordered people to lie or create false documents.

The play comes weeks before Arena Stage in Washington, DC, is set to present an 11-hour marathon reading of Volume 2 of the Mueller report, The Washington Post reported.

CNN previously reported publisher IDW is planning to turn the 448-page Mueller report into lighter reading by making it into a graphic novel.
