UPDATE, with additional Mrs. Doubtfire & Ain’t Too Proud cancellations Broadway’s Freestyle Love Supreme offered up some bad news-good news today, with the improvisational hip-hop revue canceling tonight’s performance due to Covid (the bad news) but revealing four previously unannounced appearances by co-creator Lin-Manuel Miranda for this week (the good news).
Miranda will be appearing in the Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday shows at 7 p.m. and a Friday show at 5 p.m. Those newly added Miranda appearances at the Booth Theatre join his previously announced appearance on Monday, Dec. 20 at 7 p.m.
This past weekend, Freestyle Love Supreme, co-created by Miranda, Thomas Kail, and Anthony Veneziale, canceled its Saturday performances due to breakthrough Covid cases, producers announced.
In addition to Freestyle Love Supreme, Broadway’s Mrs. Doubtfire canceled the performance on Sunday, and has now canceled this week’s Tuesday and Wednesday performances due to the detection of positive COVID test results in the company. The show is expected to resume on Thursday, Dec. 16 at 7 p.m. at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre.
Tuesday night’s performance of the Temptations musical Ain’t Too Proud also was canceled due to a breakthrough case of Covid. Performances are expected to resume Wednesday, Dec. 15, at the Imperial Theatre.
Also last weekend, Off Broadway’s Little Shop of Horrors canceled its weekend performances due to Covid.
