Here’s what executive producer Andrew Kreisberg had to say about casting Criss:
“With our Flash and our Supergirl being Glee alums, how could we not have them go up against another Glee favorite like Darren Criss? We have been blown away by his talent over the years and we can’t wait to see what he brings to the Music Meister.”
The musical crossover will kick off at the end of ‘Supergirl’ on March 20th and conclude on ‘The Flash’ on March 21st, titled “Duet.” Directed by Dermott Downs, the musical crossover will also feature musical performances from Jesse L.
