Lin-Manuel Miranda makes a brief return to the stage for three performances of Freestyle Love Supreme beginning January 12 in Las Vegas.
The Pulitzer Prize-winning creator of Hamilton and In the Heights will be part of the production at the Summit Showroom inside The Venetian Resort through January 14.
The cast also includes Simone Acosta AKA Sims, Andrew Bancroft AKA Jelly Donut, Richard Baskin, Jr. AKA Rich Midway, Kaila Mullady AKA Kaiser Rözé, Morgan Reilly AKA Hummingbird, Gable Johnson III AKA Honeycomb, Manny Houston AKA Manny PacksAwow, Dizzy Senze AKA Dizzy, and Aneesa Folds AKA Young Nees (January 12 only).
The show, conceived by Anthony Veneziale and created by Miranda, Thomas Kail, and Veneziale 20 years ago, features a non-stop blend of hip-hop, improvisational comedy, music, and vocal stylings.
“I knew I had to go back to Vegas after our electric opening week,” said Miranda in an earlier statement. “Every Freestyle Love Supreme show is unique; that's the secret sauce. The rest is made up by this unstoppable group of actors, singers, beatboxers, and you, the audience. See you there.”
The recipient of a Special Tony Award, Freestyle Love Supreme has played two Broadway engagements and just completed a national tour. The documentary We Are Freestyle Love Supreme premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2020, was nominated for a Grammy Award, and streams on Hulu.
