The mob boss known as "The King" is a recurring character in a collection of short stories by Isaak Babel. Now he's also part of an original musical based on the stories called Tales from Odessa.
The story takes place just before the Russian Revolution. Benya "The King" Krik rules a gang of thugs and smugglers in the Jewish ghetto in Odessa. But the Revolution changes the direction of their lives.
The musical version, Tales From Odessa, was written by producer and rapper Josh Dolgin, better known as Socalled. Josh joins Sonali Karnick in studio.
