Freestyle Love Supreme

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Freestyle Love Supreme is an improvisational hip-hop comedy musical group started by Lin-Manuel Miranda and Anthony Veneziale in 2004 and directed by Thomas Kail.[1][2] The group performed a Broadway musical of the same name from 2019 to 2020 at the Booth Theatre.


The idea for the project started during rehearsal breaks for Lin-Manuel Miranda's first Broadway musical, In the Heights.[3] At the beginning, it was a project for young artists to experiment with theatre and musical sound.[4] During shows, the performers rap and beatbox, backed by keyboards.[5] Unlike traditional, scripted musicals, the audience is intended to be engaged and participate in the show, providing suggestions and occasionally even being brought on stage.[2][6] Before being performed on Broadway, there were performances at Ars Nova in 2004 and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2005.[1][3][7]

Members of the group appeared in several episodes of the 2009 The Electric Company revival, on which Miranda, Sherman, Jackson, and Sullivan were regular music contributors.

The group created a 10-episode television series that aired on Pivot in 2014.[8]

The group performed its Off-Broadway and Broadway shows in 2019–2020 in celebration of their 15th anniversary.[1]

The story of the group and musical is featured in the 2020 documentary We Are Freestyle Love Supreme,[9] directed by Andrew Fried, who began filming the group in 2005.[4] The film contains footage shot over the 15 years of the group's history.[9]


Members of the cast has included the following, though other members have appeared, sometimes unannounced.[3][5][6] The opening night performance on Broadway featured nine guest stars.[5][failed verification]
