Imagine a spontaneous fusion of live music, comedy and hip-hop. Six performers create a whirlwind of musicality as they riff off audience suggestions in a show that is never the same twice. Freestyle Love Supreme is a joyful, high energy, one-of-a-kind event.
Freestyle Love Supreme chose its name as an homage to John Coltrane's "A Love Supreme", a nod to both its musical influences, which include jazz, soul, blues and hip-hop, and the expressive nature of Coltrane's sound. The cast is comprised of six ethnically diverse performers: three vocalists/actors and three musicians. Two-Touch and Lin-Man trade rhymes while Mister Wright brings in melody and harmony. Arthur the Geniuses plays the piano and sings, King Sherman plays the sax, flute and piano, and Shockwave, a human beatbox, adds the percussion. Thomas Kail directs.
