The Flash-Supergirl boss unveils origins of musical crossover

Set up that world for the viewers.
Barry and Kara are both whammied by the Music Meister, played by Darren Criss, and they wake up trapped inside an alternate dimension, which is a movie musical come to life. So they’re caught up in the plot of this musical, which involves gangsters and gun malls and a West Side Story setup with rival gangs and their kids falling in love.
[. . . ]
How does the Music Meister compare to other villains we’ve seen on the show before?
He’s certainly in love with his own villainy a lot more than others. He’s got a zest for life. He comes in and just sweeps them all off their feet, and he’s a bit of a showman, so it’s a lot of fun. Darren so brings him to life. I’m not sure who we would have gotten to do it if Darren had said no, but it turned out to be one of those things where we wanted Darren, and Darren actually wanted the part. He’d heard about it. It was very kismet, and it’s so much fun to see them all reunited from Glee.
Darren mentioned the one thing he missed out on was getting to provide some songs.
I know. I know. By the time we closed him, we were already down the path. The songs had been recorded, but hopefully this one will be a big success, and he’ll come back, and then we can do another one.
Are you guys interested in doing another one?
If we survive this one and the fans like it, as always with any of these things, we gauge the fan reaction to it. If it turns out to be a, “Yeah, that was cute, but don’t ever do that again,” we won’t. But who knows? Every time we do one of these things, like go to Earth 2 or have a musical episode, some of that stuff we gauge by the fan reaction. Like King Shark, people were so excited about that one minute with him, we were like, “Well, we’ve got to bring him back now!” So we’ll see what people say.

The Flash airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on The CW.
Yes, please, may we have the Music Meister on The Flash and Supergirl again?!!!
How will they assess if this is something that fans liked? By ratings? By social media? By reviews by critics?
Ratings always go up for crossovers. I hope there is a significant ratings increase for this crossover.
Folks, if you are on social media, tweet up a storm about how much you liked Darren as the Music Meister and the musical episode!!
Tweet you want Darren to return as the Music Meister in another episode of The Flash!!
