This musical opened off-Broadway in 1974. According to its creator, Earl Wilson Jr: "it is a musical revue about SEX... with some nudity and a lot of X-rated language. It was nominated for a Grammy in 1974 and has appeared all over the world. It is a really fun show that takes the attitude that everyone loves sex... when they are honest enough to admit it... and that we'd probably all be a lot better off if we were less uptight about it". A review of the time said: "it broke all barriers - simulated sex, orgies, lesbianism, homosexuality, simulated oral sex, bisexuality, all celebrated, all hilariously carefree."

"Let My People Come" opened at the Village Gate Theater on Bleecker Street in Greenwich Village, New York. It apparently came about during a conversation between Earl Wilson, Jr. and Phil Oesterman: "Phil told me that the time was right to do a show about sex, and make it explicit and beautiful and funny and young. I said, 'Didn't they do that in Oh, Calcutta!?' and he said 'No, there were no songs to speak of in Oh, Calcutta! Sit down and write a song and make it outrageous." The show broke all box office records at the Village Gate and played for 1,167 performances. Its transfer to the Morosco Theatre on Broadway was not as successful though, and closed after 106 performances.
