The Broadway production of Freestyle Love Supreme, which officially opened its return engagement at the Booth Theatre October 19, has canceled its 5 PM and 9 PM December 11 performances due to breakthrough COVID-19 cases in the cast.

All tickets, according to the production's social media postings, will be fully refunded at the point of purchase. The next scheduled performance is December 13 at 7 PM.

The limited run is currently scheduled through January 12, 2022. Following Broadway, the Tony-honored hip-hop improv show will hit the road for an 11-city tour, kicking off in San Francisco January 21 and wrapping up in August in Los Angeles.

Conceived by Anthony Veneziale and created by Thomas Kail, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Veneziale, Freestyle Love Supreme features a company of singing, rapping, and beat-boxing comedy artists.

Special unannounced guests join the company, including Lin-Manuel Miranda, Christopher Jackson, Daveed Diggs, James Monroe Iglehart, Wayne Brady, Ashley Pérez Flanagan, Arthur Lewis, Bill Sherman, Utkarsh Ambudkar, Alex Lacamoire, and more.

The production has a set design by Beowulf Boritt, costume design by Lisa Zinni, lighting design by Jeff Croiter, and sound design by Nevin Steinberg. General management is provided by Baseline Theatrical. Cody Renard Richard is the production stage manager/associate director.

Freestyle Love Supreme was originally developed and produced in 2004 by Ars Nova and made its Broadway debut in 2019. It is a recipient of the 2020 Special Tony Award and can be seen on the small screen as the subject of the Hulu documentary We Are Freestyle Love Supreme.
