Considered one of Broadway's most hilarious shows, "Guys and Dolls" has been described as the perfect musical comedy. It is based primarily on the Damon Runyon short story "The Idyll of Miss Sarah Brown," which describes the unlikely romance between a pure-at-heart urban missionary and a slick Broadway gambler. In 1951, New York Times drama critic Brooks Atkinson wrote of "Guys and Dolls", "It is a triumph of style. In the case of Guys and Dolls, luck has been a lady."
