Review: Freestyle Love Supreme
If the Tony Award for Best Special Theatrical Event still existed, I would hand it to Freestyle Love Supreme in a heartbeat. The mostly improvised show created by the likes of Lin-Manuel Miranda turns out to be a perfect fit for the Broadway stage.
Don't worry about having to lock your phone in a YONDR pouch, because once the night starts you won't even want it. The ever rotating cast of Freestyle Love Supreme keeps you on your toes as the raps and rhythms creates on stage are fueled by audience participation. It hits a sweet spot in the realm of theater, appealing to just about anyone while being a night that you won't soon forget.
Watching numbers spring to life before your very eyes, with no song list to refer to in your playbill, is about as live as live theater can possibly get. And it's absolutely glorious. It's absolutely blissful to sit in the Booth Theatre for Freestyle Love Supreme's all too short 85 minutes. And as the name would suggest, it's filled with so much love that you can't help but leave with a smile on your face and a song in your heart.
