  1. You know Lin would've said "FUCK YOU, KAREN!" if he wasn't on late night lmao. This had the same energy as his 'cellphone' bit "FUCK YOU, LADY!"

  2. I want to see Hamilton but man alive, this seems so quality too! I mean show would be unique to that audience since it's based on audience suggestions?!
    I couldn't dream of being that creative

  3. When Lin started rapping out open plan seating I cried. Hhhhharrrd. I work in one of these and he was ON. POINT.

  4. my first exposure to freestyle love supreme was when they appeared on college humor 10 years ago. they were already big back then, but I hadn't heard of them until that college humor rap battle bit. crazy to think its been so long

  5. Omgosh!! Yass!!! I’ve been a huge fan of theirs since back in the day and the fact that they’re on Broadway now gets me so pumped!!! I can’t wait to see this you know it’s going to be good💯🙌🏽💙

  6. Lin is going to go down in history as a modern day Shakespeare, a once in a lifetime…or rather century, creative genius. Grateful to witness it.

  7. We all know that Lin had a Karen in his office since he started with skrrrr, skkk…He wanted her OUT🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣.

  8. I’m really not hating I just don’t understand how people are entertained by this or think this is good. I never even got why Hamilton blew up so big

  9. I'm seeing lots of hate comments, and I don't understand the point of it. But instead of trying to start a fight, I'm going to say that, I, for one, love this.

  10. Three members of the Electric Company on one stage?! If you watch Jimmy's interview with Billie E. it is hilarious cause she first saw him on the Electric Company. And when Lin Manuel Miranda first made it big, I thought 'oh it is that guy from Electric Company!' Where my 90s babies at that did not have cable TV?!

  11. all 3 of them nail it!! Aneesa nails her verse, Lin nails his verse and Utkarsh nails his verse, FLS existed before Lin did In The Heights and Hamilton

  12. Amazing. Love Lin Manuel Miranda. 

    Also, if you like this – check out a freestyle rapper called Chris Turner. Basically his rhymes are more intricate; he canvasses a wider array of suggestions; is completely improvised and is (in my opinion) – the best freestyle rapper in the world. 🙂

  13. Did anyone notice that when he yelled "Go away, Karen!" you think of Robin in How I Met Your Mother, screaming, "Nobody asked you, PATRICE!" I did. Glad this popped up on here, I thought I was never going to see it since my shitty TV doesn't have NBC, even with the digital antenna.

  14. I read about Freestyle Love Supreme in the Hamilton book I won this summer from the library, and I was like that's so amazing!! Next thing I know they're bringing it back and to Broadway! Woot woot! Wish I could see it – I'm sure it's awesome!! 😀
