About this show

Let My People Come - The Party! is a clever, often "outrageous," and absolutely funny look at sex and all its complications. Show-goers will experience a 45-minute "Foreplay Party," a mixer that includes two drinks, multiple screen videos with show numbers and other material, as well as an MC to keep the party lively. Cast members will perform a song from the show as a lead-in to the main attraction. The performance run-time is one hour with a 10-minute "cooling-off period." Some musical numbers also feature tasteful nudity. An "After-play Party" continues for audience members who stay after the show ends. 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 14 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 personal liberation and sexual acceptance, is universal and timeless, according to Earl Wilson, Jr. the show's creator. Wilson says, "Even in our present era of sexual openness, with generations of kids growing up exposed to sexual themes, there is still an aura of mystery surrounding 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!"
