The Flash and Supergirl Musical Crossover - Duet!

The crossover that you've either dreaded or dreamed of is finally here! Take a first look at Duet, aka the musical crossover of The Flash and Supergirl.

Some people love musicals, and some people hate musicals. In fact, science proves that there's nobody in between. When former Glee actors Grant Gustin and Melissa Benoist were cast as The Flash and Supergirl, the demand began to grow until it could be ignored no longer, and the inevitable musical crossover was announced. Naturally, the villain for this episode is the Music Meister, a character originated in The Brave and the Bold animated series by Neil Patrick Harris, but portrayed in live action by Darren Criss, another Glee alum.

See Grant Gustin Sing and Dance as Barry Allen!

Rounding out the all-singing, all-dancing crew are Jesse L. Martin (Joe West), Carlos Valdes (Cisco), Jeremy Jordan (Winn), John Barrowman (Malcolm Merlyn), and Victor Garber (Martin Stein), who all have music backgrounds. Chris Wood (Mon-El) and David Harewood (Hank Henshaw) will also guest star, and songs from the episode are written by CW network-mate, Rachel Bloom, of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend fame.

Here's the episode synopsis:

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.

The curtains rise on Duet on March 21, 2017!
