The Freestyle Love Supreme!
In these impromptu musical comedy shows, actors turn the audience’s suggestions into humorous fragments, improvised songs, and improvisations, and fully realized musical figures. Singing, rap, harmony boxing, and freestyle flow are all supported by keyboards and human percussion. “We are very happy to return to Broadway and be part of this drama community that we really like. The immediacy of our show, and its content is driven by viewer suggestions, makes it one of the rare shows that can tell anything that is happening right now. We can’t wait to get on the Booth Theater stage to make people laugh,” Kail said. The work also includes Beowulf Boritt’s set design, Lisa Zinni’s costume design, Jeff Croiter’s lighting design, and Nevin Steinberg’s sound design. Baseline Theatrical Cody Renard Richard provides management.
