A non-profit Washington D.C. theater has suddenly withdrawn from a contract with a well-known conservative filmmaker for a star-studded, one-night showing of “FBI Lovebirds: UnderCovers” … a sordid yet verbatim tale about agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.
Anti-conservative bias is the obvious reason … censorship of unpopular voices in a liberal environment having become the go-to reaction by far too many decision makers.
Writer Phelim McAleer insists that the “cowardly” breach of contract is only a setback … the show will go on when a new venue is arranged.
Actors Dean Cain (“Lois and Clark,” “Gosnell”) and Kristy Swanson (“Psyche,” “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”) will play the parts of Strzok and Page, reciting and emoting the FBI couple’s text messages word for word throughout the play’s script.
“I have taken the actual hate-filled, sleazy, juvenile, corrupt text messages of top FBI operatives and lovers Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, and combined it with the transcript of their behind-closed-doors congressional testimony to show how they, and their Deep State colleagues, planned to take down the President of the United States,” McAleer said in an interview with the Federalist.
“The world is going to see what these sleazy establishment elites tried to do and how they tried to undermine democracy and push the Russia hoax and really organize a silent coup d’état against democracy,” he continued.
“This is 100 percent verbatim. So people know that everything they hear on that stage is 100 percent what Strzok and Page said,” stated McAleer. “It’s all there in its glory,” McAleer said, “and it does not look pretty when it’s exposed to the public gaze.”
McAleer’s intent is to film the play and release it on YouTube, as well as to hopefully bring it to the White House.
The Mead Center’s Studio Theatre walked away from its commitment to host the play for one night, after accepting a 25% down payment for renting the facility, saying that there were security concerns after learning about the content of the play. In a statement, the group said: “there have been open and violent threats made against the theater and event participants. Studio has an institutional responsibility to consider the safety of our staff, patrons, community, event organizers and attendees. These concerns must be paramount.”
McAleer countered that the booking cancellation was, in fact, political bias. “The only threat that exists is one guy on Twitter, who when he was called out he deleted the threat. That’s it. Story over.
“This is an excuse by the cowardly hypocrites, the theater set who keep giving themselves awards for bravery. They keep telling themselves how brave they are … they are cowards.”
In a recent interview given to The Hill, McAleer said, “They just do things that friends at dinner parties really like. They’re afraid of controversy. They’re afraid of the truth. They’re politically biased actually too, let’s be clear. The theater world is the most left of the entertainment industry. They do not want this kind of theater in their sacred ground.”
McAleer does know a thing or two about courage. He has taken heat for his recent film, “Gosnell,” which tells the truth about the investigation and trial of abortionist Kermit Gosnell, who was convicted of murdering three infants that were born alive. Due to the pro-life message of the film, it was dropped by many theaters despite noted success at the box office and strong viewer ratings.
His previous verbatim play, “Ferguson,” dealt with a cast walk-out in its Los Angeles premiere due to a similarly direct, fact-based approach to the Michael Brown shooting. Yet the show went on with a new cast.
The playwright was interviewed by Ezra Levant last week, and you can watch a portion of that here …
