For some, stumbling into a world that acts like an old-fashioned movie musical would be a dream. For others, a nightmare. In this giddy spoof, Saturday Night Live’s Cecily Strong and Keegan-Michael Key play a couple on the outs who are trapped in a magically tuneful land, where the slyly subversive lyrics smartly deconstruct the classics, until they can discover (or rediscover) true love. The supporting cast is a Broadway who’s-who, including Tony winners Alan Cumming (the mayor), Kristin Chenoweth (the town scold) and Moulin Rouge!’s Aaron Tveit (a Carousel-worthy bad-boy carnival barker). It’s so much fun you’ll wish all six episodes were available for bingeing. The first two drop Friday, with the rest premiering on a weekly basis. (See the full review.)
