Entertainment Tonight has released an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at The CW’s The Flash and Supergirl musical crossover episode. The sneak peek illuminates on several of the details that go into the superhero series’ first ever musical production, but what is perhaps most interesting is the revelation that it will all be set in a dream sequence of sorts (which, if you caught the latest promo during last night’s The Flash, you’ve probably gathered that already).
In the video, Melissa Benoist speaks about the world the musical exists within:
“This is our first day shooting any of the musical, like, dream sequence, dream world scenes at all. We’ve got back in time, as you can see, and we’re in this beautiful theater. Barry and Kara are stuck in a dream world and having to figure out shenanigans.” She continued, “Well, they’re on a journey. They’re both on personal journeys, figuring things out, together, as a team.”
Check out the full video below:
Another interesting moment featured in the video features the special guest villain The Music Meister, played by Benoist and Grant Gustin’s former Glee co-star Darren Criss, telling the heroes that if they die in the dream world, they die in real life. Uh-oh.
DARREN CRISS (“GLEE”) GUEST STARS AS THE MUSIC MEISTER IN THE FLASH AND SUPERGIRL MUSICAL CROSSOVER – Barry (Grant Gustin) and team are surprised when Mon- El (guest star Chris Wood) and Hank Henshaw (guest star David Harewood) arrive on their Earth carrying a comatose Supergirl (guest star Melissa Benoist) who was whammied by the Music Meister (guest star Darren Criss). Unable to wake her up, they turn to Team Flash to save her. However, the Music Meister surprises The Flash and puts him in a similar coma, one that Team Flash can’t cure. Kara and Barry wake up without their powers in an alternate reality where life is like a musical and the only way to escape is by following the script, complete with singing and dancing, to the end. Dermott Downs directed the episode with story by Greg Berlanti & Andrew Kreisberg and teleplay by Aaron Helbing & Todd Helbing (#317). Original airdate 3/21/2017.
Supergirl airs Mondays at 8/7c on and The Flash airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on The CW. Be sure to check back on Heroic Hollywood after each episode for our weekly reviews!
