“Freestyle Love Supreme” was co-created by Thomas Kail, Anthony Veneziale, and Lin-Manuel Miranda of “Hamilton” fame.
In “Freestyle Love Supreme,” the performers will take suggestions from the audience and turn them into “instantaneous riffs and full-length musical numbers” in an improv comedy-meets-musical show, according to the show’s website.
Veneziale, Kail and Miranda first developed the concept in 2004 when Miranda was developing “In the Heights.” Kail and Miranda are longtime collaborators — Kail directed “Hamilton” and “In The Heights,” both of which won multiple awards and shot Miranda into musical theater stardom.
The show ran off Broadway last winter and has been playing in Washington DC, as part of The Kennedy Center series.
Miranda will make unscheduled appearances during it’s 16-week run. Other occasional performers for the Broadway run include Christopher Jackson, Wayne Brady and Daveed Diggs — who played George Washington, Aaron Burr, and Thomas Jefferson in “Hamilton,” respectively.
The show began previews on September 13, but officially opens on Wednesday at the Booth Theatre, where it will run through January 5, 2020.
