This is brilliant.

A reading of all 448 pages of the publicly released version of the Mueller Report will take place at an art space in Queens, New York on Saturday and Sunday.
The event, “Filibustered and Unfiltered: America Reads the Mueller Report,” will be held at the Arc in Long Island City, as the New York Times previously reported.
Over 24 hours, starting at 8pm on Saturday night, volunteers will read aloud from the Mueller Report, and music will play during some of the redacted portions. The reading, organized by theater groups, DMNDR, New Neighborhood, and Slightly Altered States, aims to make the report more accessible.
“The American people paid for the Mueller Report and not a lot of people have read it,” Steven Padla, a member of New Neighborhood, told Business Insider. “We want it to be heard by as many people as possible.”
Around 120 people, mostly from the theater world, have volunteered to participate in the reading.
Tickets cost $10 apiece, though people may choose to pay more. Attendees may stay for a portion of the reading, or the full 24 hours.
The strategy by Trump’s Attorney General Bill Barr was to convince the American people that the Mueller report exonerated Trump, and dissuade them from reading the full report.
There are still millions of people who think that the Mueller report did not contain any evidence of wrongdoing as it pertains to Donald Trump, and that is absolutely not true.
I have now read the full report, and it took me over a week to do so.
It seems clear that the best way to make the report easier for the average US citizen to absorb is to read it aloud, so I think what these volunteers are doing in New York is brilliant.
Perhaps they could even eventually make it into a musical.
The title “Donald Trump Superslob” springs to mind.
