NY Theater Will Hold Live Reading of The Interview Script Draft

One way or another, the American public will get to see The Interview. For now, however, the best we can do is a New York theater holding a live reading of a near-final draft of the film’s script this week.

The Treehouse Theater in New York City is hosting a live reading in which three comedians from the Upright Citizen’s Brigade improv theater will read from a draft of the screenplay of The Interview. The movie itself, of course, is not available for the time being, after hackers reportedly connected to North Korea threatened theaters and Sony made the decision to pull the Christmas Day premiere date.

The theater’s website explains they’re holding this event because “the feeling that a threat to free speech has been imposed is inescapable and terrifying.” It’s free for anyone to attend because “the event is as much a political statement as a theatrical event.”

The live reading will be held this Saturday from 7-9 pm.
