Lin-Manuel Miranda's 'Freestyle Love Supreme' is Headed to Broadway

Lin-Manuel Miranda‘s “Freestyle Love Supreme” is coming to Broadway!

The 39-year-old composer and his improvisational hip-hop group will start a 16-week run from September to January at Booth Theater, Playbill reports.

Lin-Manuel will co-produce and make surprise appearances in the show.

Other occasional performers include Christopher Jackson, James Monroe Iglehart, Wayne Brady, and Daveed Diggs. The core cast includes Andrew Bancroft, Arthur Lewis, Bill Sherman, Chris Sullivan, Anthony Veneziale, and Utkarsh Ambudkar.

The musical, which has already had a sold-out run downtown this year, will start previews on September 13 and open on October 2.

“Fifteen years ago, when ‘Freestyle Love Supreme’ was first developed, the idea of bringing our little improv show to Broadway seemed completely out of the realm of possibility,” Lin-Manuel Miranda and Thomas Kail said in a statement. “But it is out of that improbability that FLS has found this new home, thanks to legions of loyal fans—first at Ars Nova, at various festivals around the world, then with one-off shows, and most recently with our off-Broadway run last winter. We’ve had many of our happiest and most fulfilling creative moments working on FLS and are excited to see its next chapter unfold at the Booth Theatre. It is a show that consistently surprises us: we have no idea what to expect any time we do it— and isn’t that the true beauty of live theater? ‘Freestyle Love Supreme’ wouldn’t want or have it any other way!”

Tickets go on sale to the general public on July 9.
