Tits up and bags packed? Join Midge and Susie as they take to the skies to tour with Shy Baldwin in season three of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel now streaming on Amazon Prime Video. Already nominated for two Golden Globe, three Critic’s Choice, four Screen Actor’s Guild (SAG) and two Writer’s Guild Awards, this season tests both women personally and professionally as they navigate the highs/lows of big time venues and ethnically diverse audiences from Las Vegas to Miami. Not to mention staying in the good graces of Shy’s controlling manager Reggie (Sterling Brown, This is Us.)
Meanwhile back in NYC, Sophie Lennon wants Susie to make her a dramatic Broadway star. Joel considers opening a Chinatown nightclub and meets the mysterious Mei (Stephanie Hsu, The Path). Moishe and Shirley move to Forest Hills, Queens as Abe and Rose come to terms with their new financial situation. Abe mentors young left wing beatniks while Rose discovers profit yielding yenta skills. Susie discovers that being a good manager doesn’t necessarily go hand-in-glove with good money management skills. Midge’s sheltered Upper Westside self gets woke to her white privilege and schooled on tour life by bass player Carole (Liza Weil, Gilmore Girls). Go big or go home but be wary of what you say — words have consequences this season.
“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’s” season 3 is streaming now on Amazon.
