Looks like we’re not in Schmigadoon anymore… Apple TV+ season 2 musical comedy Shows Schmigadoon! will take audiences from the Golden Age of the 40s and 50s and move them into the dark, murderous musicals of the 60s and 70s! Think: bar, Hair, Sweeney Todd and of course, Chicagolike our favorite Josh (Keegan Michael Key) and Melissa (strong) came across the land of Schmicago while searching Their beloved Schmigadoon.

When season 1 of the sublime series was released, the world was in the midst of a global pandemic, Broadway was closed, and the show gave music lovers and more a world-famous comeback. the world they had missed so much. Now, as we continue to move back to our new normal, the show sings to a different, but still important, tune with season 2. “I think now the show has garnered a fair amount of attention. The audience hoped and everyone loved the first season, and now we’re expanding the world, aren’t we? I think the world of season two is much broader, and the show is just a broader, more ambitious show.” Aaron Tveitwho played Topher in this season, speak hollywood life in an EXCLUSIVE interview. “Hopefully those who are perhaps not necessarily ‘just’ theater fans will be able to take part in the trip a little more this time around as it’s a darker, gritty story genre. fall more.

Cameron pigeon, which Jenny took from Sally Bowles in bar, repeat the love of the co-star and praise the show’s creator, Cinco Paul. “I also think that’s great, and Aaron mentioned this before about musicals being the ‘Troyan horse’ kind of thing; for the emotional lessons we all need to learn… you don’t even realize you’re downloading emotions until the end of it,” the singer told HL. “Cinco does it brilliantly throughout a six-episode arc. And by the end of the movie, as someone reading the script, I was sobbing. I am feeling complete. I was taken on a journey. I think that’s very special, and what I think we’ve been fortunate enough to be really involved in quite a bit in our careers, is these larger-than-life characters in these bigger-than-life worlds. solve very human problems.

She continued, “As a spectator, it allowed us to escape into their world and forget who we were. But then, in the end, it brings us back to ourselves and we’ve almost readjusted. I think Cinco has done a great job of that this time around, and I think that’s always necessary and appropriate.”

Dove went on to compare her portrayal of Jenny Banks this season with her portrayal of Betsy McDonough from season 1, and found some interesting similarities as well as differences in retrospect. “My character from season one was a very sexist prediction of commentary on what women should be like at the time these musicals were written. But, interesting because she was aware of what she was doing with these men, it was also the story written by men about women of the time. It was as if she knew what she was doing, she was a weasel, and I was a good man from a good family. I thought it was interesting because it was a big commentary on the value of women and their ‘chaste chastity,'” she recalls.

Looking towards Jenny Banks, Dove admits the role is still a ‘commentary’ on how women are portrayed in the ’60s and ’70s, but there are some glaring differences that need to be questioned. “Sally Bowles’ character is groundbreaking and this deeply flawed woman, but also a woman in charge of her own sexuality, a woman who is flawed and deeply wounded. , but at the same time, there is actually an inversion of perception,” she theorized. “Sally Bowles is clearly not self-aware, like she wants so many things from the world around her and tries to use everything she has to get there, but she is too young. children in their efforts. I think it’s an interesting change those characters have gone through. I wonder if it’s a commentary on how we’ve seen women over the decades.”

The first two episodes of Schmigadoon! season 2 premieres on Apple TV+ on April 5.
