Before Lin-Manuel Miranda was a household name for his Broadway hits, In The Heights and Hamilton, and long before his now successful film career, he was the co-founder of a hip-hop improv troupe called Freestyle Love Supreme with director Thomas Kail and beatboxer Anthony Veneziale. The broadway show features six talented performers providing nonstop action throughout a fast-paced evening, spinning cues from the audience into humorous bits, instantaneous songs and fully realized musical numbers, show spawned into a short-lived television series in 2014.
Now, Hulu is making Freestyle Love Supreme the center of its newest documentary and will chronicled their journey that started back in the summer of 2005 to now as the young performers on show have now become big names in film, television, and the stage.
According to the streaming platform, director Andrew Fried’s film “recalls the creative dreams of youth and why this show still means so much to these accomplished performers.”
In addition to Lin-Manuel Miranda, Kail, Veneziale and Jackson recounting their journey, the documentary will also feature appearances from stars Arthur Lewis, Utkarsh Ambudkar, Chris Sullivan, Bill Sherman, James Monroe Iglehart and Andrew Bancroft.
We Are Freestyle Love Supreme premieres on Friday, June 5, 2020, on Hulu.
