Do Re Mi.

Do Re Mi is a stage musical by Garson Kanin.



Hubie Cram is "a loser endlessly scheming to win big." His long-suffering patient wife Kay urges him to "Take a Job," while he plots. He finds three pals, Fatso O'Rear, Brains Berman and Skin Demopoulos, and they scheme to enter the juke-box business.

Soon they have 300 juke-boxes, which they plan on selling to John Henry Wheeler, a record producer. Hubie discovers a naive singer, Tilda Mullen, and they plan their future. At a fancy nightclub Hubie explains, and demonstrates, gangster's behaviour that he learned from watching the Late Late Show. Kay compares her abandoned comfortable existence with the insecurity of life with Hubie. Tilda and Wheeler fall in love. In the end Hubie realizes that he has nothing except a wonderful marriage.
