They are not allowed to leave by a leprechaun until they find true love. 

Season one is a parody of 1940s – 1950s musicals, the golden age of musicals. The town is categorized with bright colours and cheerful citizens. Season two is the opposite. The town Schmicago is mostly dark with colours with mostly negative people.

The series has notable actors such as Dove Cameron, Cecily Strong, Kristin Chenoweth, Jane Krakowski, Aaron Tveit, Jaime Camil, Ariana DeBose and Keegan Michael Key. It is funny, inspiring and dramatic. Most of the songs are rememberable and comedic. It is a feel good for those who love musicals. 

If you also love the idea of people dancing and singing out of nowhere you will thoroughly enjoy this. And since this is a series you don’t have to sit through it all if you do not like it.
