“Freestyle Love Supreme,” a half-hour original special, brings the national audience into New York City’s celebrated venue, Joe’s Pub, to experience the much talked about live improvised show from two of the creators of the Tony award-winning musical, In The Heights. Dubbed by The New York Times as “Masters in the art of Freestyle rhyme," Freestyle Love Supreme uses rap to spin audience suggestions into fully-realized musical numbers. Now, for the first-time, Pivot viewers can get in on the action via social media. “Freestyle Love Supreme” stars Lin Manuel Miranda, Utkarsh Ambudkar, Anthony Veneziale, Chris Sullivan, Bill Sherman and Arthur Lewis. The show is created by Thomas Kail and Anthony Veneziale. Kail and Veneziale also executive produce, along with Jon Steingart, Jill Furman and Jillian Apfelbaum. The special is produced by Ars Nova.
