Lin-Manuel Miranda freestyles on ‘The Tonight Show’, announces new Broadway show

Lin-Manuel Miranda is no stranger to rapping on The Tonight Show.

On Tuesday, the composer appeared in a segment called “Freestyle Generator,” which challenged him to rap using three random subjects however he saw fit.

As you’d expect, it’s seamless, but at the end of the segment Miranda had another surprise, announcing he’s bringing Freestyle Love Supreme to Broadway in September.

The improvised hip hop show from Miranda, Thomas Kail, and Anthony Veneziale, had a successful run in early 2019, and you can expect surprise appearances along the way.

“Fifteen years ago, when Freestyle Love Supreme was first developed, the idea of bringing our little improv show to Broadway seemed completely out of the realm of possibility,” said Kail and Miranda in a statement to Playbill.

“But it is out of that improbability that FLS has found this new home, thanks to legions of loyal fans-first at Ars Nova, at various festivals around the world, then with one-off shows, and most recently with our off-Broadway run last winter. “
