In the past, if you told me the biggest name in entertainment was a Broadway star, I’d probably say, “What year is this? 1948?” But thanks to the success of the hip-hop musical Hamilton, the hottest show in the country isn’t on TV or at the movie theaters, it’s on the stage; and its creator Lin-Manuel Miranda is getting the kind of attention usually reserved for movie stars.
Just how desperate is the world for more Miranda content? NBC’s new-ish online platform Seeso has recently acquired the rights to stream episodes of Freestyle Love Supreme – a musical improv show that originally aired on the Pivot channel back in 2014. The show features Miranda’s improv troupe of the same name doing what musical improv troupes do best: taking audience suggestions and turning them into funny songs.
