Following a hit run downtown, Freestyle Love Supreme officially opened on Broadway at the Booth Theatre in October 2019 for a limited run. A blend of hip-hop, improvisational theatre, music, and vocal stylings, the performance was created by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Thomas Kail, and Veneziale and featured a core nightly cast as well a number of guest stars throughout the run—including Miranda, James Monroe Iglehart, Daveed Diggs, and Christopher Jackson.
