Set in Damon Runyon's mythical New York City, this oddball romantic comedy - considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy-soars with the spirit of Broadway as it introduces us to a cast of vivid characters who have become legends in the canon: Sarah Brown, the upright but uptight "mission doll," out to reform the evildoers of Time Square; Sky Masterson, the slick, high-rolling gambler who woos her on a bet and ends up falling in love; Adelaide, the chronically ill nightclub performer whose condition is brought on by the fact she's been engaged to the same man for 14 years; and Nathan Detroit, her devoted fiancee, desperate as always to find a spot for his infamous floating crap game. Accolades and Awards: Won eight Tony Awards, including Best Music, Authors and Composer and Lyricist Frank Loesser. It also won the New York Drama Critics Circle Award. The film version had the highest box-office gross of 1955. The 1992 production won a Tony for Best Revival.
