The past few episodes of both The Flash and Supergirl have been relatively heavy and serious with heartbreaking revelations for the heroes of each series. Next week fans and the characters from each show will be provided with some relief from the comparatively dark tone of recent episodes when The Flash and Supergirl unite for a musical event. DC All Access visited the set of the musical episode in a video that includes interviews with the cast and offers fans a preview of some of the dance numbers that will be featured.
The set visit features interviews with ‘Arrowverse’ cast members Grant Gustin, Melissa Benoist, Candice Patton, Carlos Valdes, Jessie L. Martin, Victor Garber and guest star Darren Criss.
You can watch the entire set visit in the video below. The Flash/Supergirl musical crossover segment begins at the 1:57 mark.
The set visit also features an portion where Melissa Benoist previews upcoming episodes of Supergirl.
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 on Monday at 8:00 pm ET on The CW.
