We’ve seen a few previews so far, but Flash and Supergirl’s musical meeting is finally upon us. Barry and Kara share a soulful “Duet” in the first full trailer, squaring off against Darren Criss’ Music Meister in a race to the final curtain.

As Criss’ character points out, Barry and Kara won’t be following any yellow brick road in their musical journey, though death within this musical reality will be equally fatal outside. Nonetheless, they’re still going to make us wait for a snippet of those actual songs.

The March 21 event (technically kicking off March 20) will feature original musical numbers like the Rachel Bloom-written “Super Friend,” and La La Land duo Benj Pasek and Justin Paul’s “Runnin’ Home to You.” Other tracks include a Melissa Benoist cover of “Moon River,” an ensemble performance of Jackie DeShannon’s “Put a Little Love in Your Heart,” and an upbeat dance number choreographed by Glee’s Zachary Woodlee.

Here’s the “Duet” synopsis, which explains the full musical premise:


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 two-night event will get started with Supergirl on March 20, and crescendo in the following night’s Flash “Duet.” You can check out the first photos and footage below, and stay tuned for more.
