Tony Award winner James Monroe Iglehart and Tony Nominee Chris Jackson will both be appearing in FREESTYLE LOVE SUPREME during its engagement at the Kimmel Cultural Campus in Philadelphia. James Monroe Iglehart will be in the show June 7-11; Chris Jackson will begin the show June 11-12.
JAMES MONROE IGLEHART (J-Soul) has performed with FLS on Broadway. He was also seen in Hamilton (Lafayette/Jefferson), and Aladdin (Genie; Tony Award). CHRISTOPHER JACKSON (C-Jack) is a founding member of FLS and a Tony Award-nominated actor as well as a Grammy and Emmy award-winning songwriter/composer best known for starring as George Washington in Hamilton.
Following a successful limited Broadway engagement this fall that included a 2020 Special Tony Award®, the critically-acclaimed improv sensation FREESTYLE LOVE SUPREME, conceived by Philadelphia native Anthony Veneziale and created by Thomas Kail, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Anthony Veneziale, announced a national tour coming to the Kimmel Cultural Campus’ Miller Theater from June 7-12, 2022. The Broadway series in Philadelphia is presented by the Kimmel Cultural Campus and The Shubert Organization.
Created before In the Heights and Hamilton and directed by Kail, FREESTYLE LOVE SUPREME is a thrilling, improvised musical comedy show that features talented performers providing non-stop action throughout this fast-paced evening, spinning suggestions from the audience into humorous bits, instantaneous songs and riffs, and fully realized musical numbers. The electrifying vocals of the performers – from singing to rapping to beat-boxing with harmonies and freestyle flow – are backed by tight tunes from keyboards and human percussion. The show is created live every night with the audience contributing words, ideas, and inspiration. No two shows are ever the same.
