Theatre Memphis presents Otto Harback and Frank Mandel's NO, NO, NANETTE, directed by Mark Steven Robinson, at the Lohrey Stage of the Theatre Memphis, June 8 - July 1, 2012. Music is by Vincent Youmens and Lyrics by Otto Harbak and Irving Caesar.
NO, NO, NANETTE is the story of Jimmy Smith, a hard working and successful Bible publisher who travels around the country. During his business trips, he meets three single girls whom he befriends, with strictly platonic feelings. Jimmy's wife, Sue, is a very ecconomical woman, and, although the Smiths are well-to-do, she refuses to spend money the way Jimmy would like her to. Spending money makes Jimmy happy, and his three friends are more than willing to spend Jimmy's money for him and make him happy. Jimmy becomes nervous that Sue will find out about the three girls and misunderstand his relationships with them, so he asks his friend and lawyer, Billy Early, for his help. There are marriages about to be broken, love affairs ended, the threat of scandal, blackmail, and more.
