Publisher's Summary

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"
    Would you listen to Damon Runyon: Broadway Complex again? Why?

    Yes. But then, I listen to all favorites repeatedly.


    Did John Brown do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    No. Like some guy doing a "Damon Runyon" imitation of "Damon Runyon" characters.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Damon Runyon's tales and voice have been so used, abused and inflated. Underplaying, rather than overplaying, the dialect and accent would have put back some of the raw sweetness and wordlay.


    Any additional comments?

    It's great to revisit these characters, but I hold out hope for a straight up version.
