Watch Lin-Manuel Miranda and FREESTYLE LOVE SUPREME Bust a Rhyme in Concert Special!
Just last week, Pivot aired an original special on Freestyle Love Supreme- a high-energy, completely improvised hip hop show, from the two creators of the award-winning Broadway hit In the Heights. Miss the special? CLICK HERE to watch the full concert event!
Later this month, Lincoln Center Theater will present a LCT3 Special Event - Freestyle Love Supreme will play 4 performances only, March 21 and 22 at 7pm and 9pm, at the Claire Tow Theater (150 West 65 Street).
Freestyle Love Supreme is a stage show like no other. Six performers, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Chris Jackson, Chris "Shockwave" Sullivan, Andrew Bancroft, Arthur Lewis, and Bill Sherman, take the crowd on a non-stop hip hop improv ride, spinning cues from the audience into instantaneous riffs and fully realized musical numbers. Freestyle Love Supreme is directed by Thomas Kail, who recently directed the LCT and LCT3 productions of BROKE-OLOGY and WHEN I COME TO DIE, respectively.
Freestyle Love Supreme has performed many times at Joe's Pub, as well as at the Edinburgh International Fringe Festival, the HBO US Comedy Arts Festival, the Melbourne Comedy Festival, Paramount Comedy UK and the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal. Their first ever TV special aired March 8th at 10pm on Pivot, a brand new television channel (www.pivot.tv). The New York Times calls FREESTYLE LOVE SUPREME "Masters in the art of Freestyle rhyme."
Tickets to Freestyle Love Supreme, priced at $20, are available at the Lincoln Center Theater box office, at telecharge.com or by visiting www.lct3.org. For more information on FREESTYLE LOVE SUPREME, visit www.freestylelovesupreme.com.
