Johnny, a mild-mannered banker, gets his heart broken when his wife, Janet, requests a divorce. It's not that he's been a bad husband; in fact, it's just the opposite -- he's too nice and annoyingly predictable. Desperate to win back his wife's affection, Johnny follows the ill-advice of his friend and neighbor, Ralph, to make Janet question his fidelity. Unfortunately for Ralph, Ralph's own wife is the one who volunteers to help Johnny with his scheme. From compromising situations on a bearskin rug to the staggering effects of the "Green Elevator," the most potent cocktail to ever be concocted on stage, this adaptation from the Jazz-Age Broadway comedy hit follows these seemingly mismatched couples as they rediscover why they are together in the first place.
