Celebs give voice to the People - Free Show in Boston! Star Studded reading of 'A People's History of the United States'!

Are you going to be in Boston on January 8th or 9th?
Do you enjoy political history?
Do you ever wish a group of celebrities would read a book for you, so you don't have to use your own eyes like a sucker?

Then, boy do I have a show for you!

Celebrities will be reading A People's History of the United States by Howard Zinn at the Cutler Majestic at Emerson College. The show will be recorded, and divided into four, one hour episodes. No network has picked up the show yet, but with the current political climate being what it is, and the list of talent is actually pretty cool. I'm sure there wont be any issues selling the show.

Tickets are free, and they need a live audience, so I would HIGHLY recommend checking it out.
From the Majestic website:

Big names, and the rest is history

At long last, Howard Zinn's influential 1980 book "A People's History of the United States" is being turned into a TV miniseries called "The People Speak," and it'll be shot here in Boston next month. The series will star several Hollywood heavies, including Matt Damon, Marisa Tomei, Viggo Mortensen, Danny Glover, Josh Brolin, and David Strathairn, as well as actresses Kerry Washington and Q'Orianka Kilcher, and singer Allison Moorer.


And how about this? The music will be performed by Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder and perhaps Bruce Springsteen, who's a big fan of Zinn's book. "I think there's a good chance Bruce will do a song," said Zinn. "This is exciting."

I'm super jealous. I would totally get a kick out of this! Someone needs to go and let me know how it was!
