What is ‘Schmigadoon’ About?
After what seems like an eternity of being bored to death, Melissa (Cecily Strong) and Josh (Keegan Michael-Key), play a couple who go on a backpacking trip in Europe as a way of rekindling their failing marriage. At one point during their trip they come across Schmigadoon where the citizens all look as if it was straight out of a 1940s studio musical! When trying to leave this town, they realize that there is no escape until you find “true love.”
“Schmigadoon!” was inspired by the Broadway hit Brigadoon. The 1940s broadway featured two American tourists Tommy and Jeff, who stumble upon a mysterious Scottish village name Brigadoon that appears for only one day every 100 years.
