The Vagabond King is a 1925 operetta by Rudolf Friml, with a book and lyrics by Brian Hooker and William H. Post, telling a highly romanticized tale concerning the 15th century poet François Villon. The original production opened at the Casino Theatre on September 21, 1925. It starred Dennis King as Villon and Carolyn Thomson as Katherine and ran for a successful 511 performances. The production was lavish and used an unusually large pit orchestra.
