First Look: Freestyle Love Supreme Returns to Broadway’s Booth Theatre

Freestyle Love Supreme (preme-preme-preme-preme) is back on Broadway! Created by Thomas Kail, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Anthony Veneziale, Freestyle Love Supreme returned to Broadway’s Booth Theatre on October 7 after closing its first run at the same theatre in January 2020. It will play a limited run through January 2, 2022.

The company of Freestyle Love Supreme includes Andrew Bancroft AKA “Jelly Donut;” Tarik Davis AKA “Tardis Hardaway;” Aneesa Folds AKA “Young Nees;” Arthur Lewis AKA “Arthur the Geniuses;” Kaila Mullady AKA “Kaiser Rözé;” Chris Sullivan AKA “Shockwave;” and Anthony Veneziale AKA “Two-Touch.”

Special spontaneous and unannounced guests are planned for select performances during the run which may include Freestyle Love Supreme members Lin-Manuel Miranda, Christopher Jackson, Daveed Diggs, James Monroe Iglehart, Wayne Brady, Ashley Pérez Flanagan, Bill Sherman, Utkarsh Ambudkar, and many more.

Directed by Kail, Freestyle Love Supreme is a joyful, improvised musical comedy show that Entertainment Weekly calls “lightning in a bottle.” It features talented performers providing non-stop action throughout this fast-paced evening, spinning suggestions from the audience into humorous bits, instantaneous songs, and riffs, and fully realized musical numbers. The electrifying vocals of the performers – from singing to rapping to beat-boxing with harmonies and freestyle flow – are backed by tight tunes from keyboards and human percussion. The show is created live every night with the audience contributing words, ideas and inspiration. No two shows are ever the same.
