Freestyle Love Supreme, the freestyle hip hop crew featuring Tony winner Lin-Manuel Miranda, who was last seen in the Encores! production of Merrily We Roll Along, plays the Gramercy Theatre April 7.



The 7:30 PM performance, directed by Thomas Kail (Magic/Bird, In the Heights, Lombardi), also features Anthony Veneziale ("Trauma," PBS' "The Electric Company"), Chris "Shockwave" Sullivan (PBS' "The Electric Company"), James Iglehart (Memphis, PBS’ "The Electric Company") and singer-songwriter Arthur Lewis.

Miranda, creator of the Tony Award-winning musical In the Heights, teams up with other members of the Heights cast and creative team in Freestyle Love Supreme to "take the crowd on a non-stop, hip hop improv ride, spinning cues from the audience into instantaneous riffs and fully realized musical numbers."
