From the pen of legendary raconteur Damon Runyon comes tales of a New York that never was but might have been - a world of smooth-talking card sharks, smiling crap-shooters, cheerful con men, and charming rogues. Featuring radio favorite John Brown as your host, Broadway, Damon Runyon Theater brings to vivid life some of the master's finest short stories. They're positively Runyonesque!
"Damon Runyon deserves better"
It is the summer of 1950 and a series of inexplicable events has struck Buckshaw, the decaying English mansion that Flavia's family calls home. A dead bird is found on the doorstep, a postage stamp bizarrely pinned to its beak. Hours later, Flavia finds a man lying in the cucumber patch and watches him as he takes his dying breath. For Flavia, who is both appalled and delighted, life begins in earnest when murder comes to Buckshaw.
Nubsy Taylor, Pete The Beddler, Milk Ear, and Broadway go collegiate! They travel to New Haven to sell some ducats and search for Gigolo Georgie.
