The King of the Entire World
by Daniel Pisello

This musical ran for the 1978-79 season and was revived occasionally after that. Besides the performances on 4th Street, the show was taken to schools and summer camps. It was also performed in Spanish.

Backstage at an outdoor show, 1980: Rita Gross (Marguerita), Janie Paul (Pepe Bill), Dee Green (Wing Toy)

These tracks are from the 'original cast' LP made from the first production. It contains the entire show complete with dialog. It is not precisely the original (that is, opening) cast, because although all these actors did play all these parts at some point in the run, there was never a performance with this exact personnel.
