Cecily Strong shines in ‘Schmigadoon!’: From ‘SNL’ to SAG Awards?
Cecily Strong has gotten to show off her musical chops on “Saturday Night Live” before, but the Apple TV+ series “Schmigadoon!”, released this past summer, is an even greater showcase. The actress plays Melissa Gimble, a doctor on a retreat with her boyfriend (Keegan-Michael Key) in the hope of fixing their relationship. They ultimately stumble into the magical town of Schmigadoon, which is seemingly stuck in a movie musical from the Golden Age of Hollywood, where they can only leave if they find true love. The series gives Strong plenty of opportunities to sing and dance, while also giving viewers a chance to see the sketch comedian inhabit a character with sincerity.
