I think people are saying it's stunt casting because it seems like an odd choice other than he is somewhat known and has a slight following. I'm surprised Andrew isn't extending... I'm hoping to see him in the show once more before he departs, and hopefully I'll be seeing him in many future productions.

Just to add balance.. I was personally not impressed. Didn't help that Danny was out for the show that I saw but I just found all the modern pop songs super distracting. But that's me. Sound was mixed at rock concert levels... wayyyy too amplified for Broadway. But I know they are trying to do something different.

This. I went to Freestyle Love Supreme 10:00 pm on my last trip as kinda a "shrug, if they have $40 rush tickets I might as well check it out" - I left going "why have I been missing this all weekend!?"
First of all... Freestyle Love Supreme is an Adult show. You may be fine with that, but if you're not.. you should know that there is alot of language and the potential for some very adult themed jokes. There is no guarantee that LMM will be in the cast... obviously if he is, huge win. I've been to Freestyle Love Supreme and loved it.. but it's not a broadway show. It's a rap version of whose line is it anyway. It's alot of fun.. but not broadway.

Show was great, except the Second Chance audience story they picked was Not Good and they should’ve ditched it immediately, but instead it went the whole 20 minutes. The finale definite
When I saw the show a couple weeks ago.. Lin was in the early show and not in the late show. I had rush tickets for the late show and got to the theatre a little early and was super excited to see Lin come out to the stage door from the early show. But then he wasn't in the late show. Still great though and James Monroe was in the late show. I loved the show. Would have liked to see Lin perform but part of the fun is not knowing who you will get or what will happen.
I went to the box office last monday night around 8:00 PM and could still get a rush seat for the 10 pm. It was a great seat, just off to the side but on the main orchestra level and pretty close.
Lin was in the 7:00 show that night but not the 10:00. Saw him at the stage door while I was waiting to go in.. so at least I got to see him in person. ha. The show was VERY fun. Was alot more improv comedy than I was expecting... and I mean that in a good way. Super creative.&nbs
I stopped by the box office around 3:00 on Tuesday October 8. Nobody was in the cancellation line outside. I asked at the box office for one ticket for either tuesday night or either of the Wednesday shows and I got a center orchestra Row J ticket for $237. Was a great seat and loved the show. (first time seeing it after years of trying in both NYC and Chicago.).
This Tuesday I stopped by the box office at around noon.. they didn't have any Rush left and the mid-priced tickets were way over to the side in row O. Like $99 or $109? I passed and around 2:45 stopped by TCKTS and got a center seat row G for $98. (With the height of the stage at the music box I wouldn't want to be much closer than Row G... pretty perfect seat).
Andrew Barth Feldman is pretty amazing in the role... one of the best performances I've seen so for s
