Three years on from their romantic meet-cute, things have become monotonous for New York doctors Melissa (Cecily Strong) and Josh (Keegan Michael-Key). With the spark between them smothered by incessant bickering, they embark on a backpacking trip in the hopes of patching up their relationship. After losing their way in the woods, they stumble upon the strange town of Schmigadoon, which they soon discover is trapped in Golden Age-style Hollywood studio musical.

In a twist on the premise of Vincente Minnelli’s 1954 musical classic Brigadoon, Melissa and Josh learn that their only chance of escaping Schmigadoon and returning to their normal lives is to (re)discover true love. Featuring dazzling song-and-dance numbers and a stellar cast of Broadway luminaries including Kristen Chenoweth, Alan Cumming, Tituss Burgess, and Aaron Tveit, Schmigadoon! is a loving, tongue-in-cheek homage to the musical spectaculars of decades past and a charming showcase for the sparkling lyrics of creator Cinco Paul and composer Christopher Willis. This event will feature two episodes of Schmigadoon!: S1E1, “Schmigadoon!” and S2E2, “Welcome to Schmicago.”

In this event, composer Christopher Willis will join moderator Tyler Morgenstern (Assistant Director, Carsey-Wolf Center) for a post-screening discussion of his work composing the underscore for Schmigadoon!
