Lin-Manuel Miranda, Paul Rudd, and More at Opening of Freestyle Love Supreme
Celebrate the festivities with the company of the new off-Broadway show.
Freestyle Love Supreme celebrated its opening night at the Greenwich House Theater on February 12. Thomas Kail, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Jenny and Jon Steingart, and Jill Furman produce the show.
Conceived by Kail, Miranda, and Anthony Veneziale, Freestyle Love Supreme is described as a high-energy show that is a blend of hip-hop, improvisational theater, music, and vocal stylings, all backed by live music from keyboards and beats.
The show features Andrew Bancroft, a.k.a. Jelly Donut; Arthur Lewis, a.k.a. Arthur the Geniuses; Bill Sherman, a.k.a. King Sherman; Chris Sullivan, a.k.a. Shockwave; Anthony Veneziale, a.k.a. Two Touch; and Utkarsh Ambudkar, a.k.a. UTK the INC. The six performers spin cues from the audience into humorous bits, instantaneous songs and riffs, and fully realized musical numbers.
Special surprise guests are planned for select performances during the run which could include, in addition to Miranda, FLS members Chris Jackson, James Monroe Iglehart, and Daveed Diggs. All audience cellphones are checked at the door for a truly memorable and personal experience.
The 80-minute show is directed by Kail and features set design by Beowulf Boritt, costume design by Lisa Zinni, lighting design by Jeff Croiter, and sound design by Nevin Steinberg. General management provided by Baseline Theatrical.
