A Brotherhood of Talent
A behind the scenes look at how the fringe, off-Broadway and Broadway show Freestyle Love Supreme came together.
There may be no in-between on whether you like or do not like improv/freestyle but there's no denying when the group is really talented, magic can happen. This is a doc about a group of people who have rich, creative minds and the ability to allow those creations to flow out incredibly quickly. It is also about friends and how Lin-Manuel Miranda and his guys nurtured and grew those relationships into a story about friendship. It's an excellent peek into how LMM's mind flows and where In The Height's and Hamilton's greatness came from.
I really liked seeing the development between Lin and Thomas Kail, his director for both Broadway musicals. This documentary is a must for fans of Hamilton, as you can see some of the genesis on display.
