Freestyle Love Supreme is performed by Andrew Bancroft (“Jelly Donut”), Arthur Lewis (“Arthur The Geniuses”), Bill Sherman (“King Sherman”), Chris Sullivan (“Shockwave”), Anthony Veneziale (“Two-Touch”) and Utkarsh Ambudkar (“UTK”). Audiences can expect a rowdy and high-octane evening of off-the-cuff raps devised from audience shout-outs and suggestions. Outside of the core team, special guests including Miranda, Daveed Diggs and Ashley Pérez Flanagan will perform on selected dates.
Freestyle Love Supreme on Broadway is directed by Thomas Kail (In the Heights, Hamilton), a long-time collaborator of Miranda’s. Other creatives include scenic designer Beowulf Boritt (Come From Away, Act One) and sound designer Nevin Steinberg (Hamilton, Hadestown).
Anyone watching the show is expected to secure their phone in a Yondr pouch for the duration – a sure sign that attention will be squarely on the astonishing wordplay on-stage. Forget texting or social media for an evening: Freestyle Love Supreme begins previews at the Booth Theatre on September 13, with an opening night on October 2.
