FREESTYLE LOVE SUPREME - ill begin performances on Thursday, October 7

Before Hamilton and In The Heights, there was FREESTYLE LOVE SUPREME, the highly-acclaimed improv sensation conceived by Anthony Veneziale and created by Thomas Kail, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Anthony Veneziale more than 17 years ago in the basement of the Drama Bookshop in New York City. The strictly limited Broadway engagement, produced by Kail, Miranda, Jenny, and Jon Steingart, and Jill Furman, and the recipient of a 2020 Special Tony Award, will begin performances on Thursday, October 7, 2021, at the Booth Theatre, 222 W. 45th Street. The intermission-less show that Rolling Stone calls “pure joy” will end its limited engagement on Sunday, January 2, 2022.

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.

FREESTYLE LOVE SUPREME’s company 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.

Tickets are on sale now at Telecharge at (212) 239-6300 or 

A lottery for a limited number of $25 tickets will be offered during the run.

Based on CDC and New York state guidelines at the time of performance, protocols may include contact tracing survey, vaccination or negative test verification, limitations on belongings in the theatre, proper mask usage, assigned entry times, contactless temperature check, social distancing, and more. Specific health & safety protocols are subject to change but will be clearly communicated to ticket holders in advance of their performance.
