An "After-play Party" continues for audience members who wish to hang out after LET MY PEOPLE COME originally opened at New York's Village Gate in 1974 and immediately started breaking OFF-Broadway attendance records. The show sold out The Gate for three years running, did a stint at Broadway's Morosco Theater, and then went on to become an international smash hit. LET MY PEOPLE COME toured the world for 15 consecutive years, selling out venues wherever it went. The Grammy- nominated cast album is still ‘must-have' music.
LET MY PEOPLE COME - THE PARTY! with its themes of sexual and personal liberation and sexual acceptance is universal and timeless, according to Earl Wilson, Jr., the show's creator, composer and lyricist, who says, "Even in our present era of sexual openness, with generations of kids growing up exposed to sexual themes, people are still mystified about sex. The show says it's OK to be sexual and it does it in a most delightful way. It's good-natured, sensual, often very touching, and absolutely non- threatening. Most of all, it's fun!"
