Darren's TV Projects for 2017 - Fri Mar 24, 2017 12:51 am

Darren Criss Army was nice enough to post the review by the Los Angeles Times.

The Los Angeles Times loved the musical crossover episode!  :happy face  To read the entire article, go to Darren Criss Army's link:  http://darrencrissarmy.com/post/158739979452/the-flash-and-supergirl-musical-crossover

'The Flash' and 'Supergirl' musical crossover kills with cuteness

March 22, 2017

Watching the jaunty episode titled “Duet” was like inhaling pure joy — a saccharine-saturated performance so ridiculously self-aware that both leads Barry “The Flash” Allen (Grant Gustin) and Kara “Supergirl” Danvers (Melissa Benoist) intermittently dropped character to look around the set, as if they too couldn’t believe the charm of what they were creating.

Former “Glee” star Darren Criss was cast as antagonist the Music Meister. He popped into the last few minutes of a previous “Supergirl” episode and “whammied” (yes, whammied) Supergirl into the musical fantasy land.

[. . . ]

Naturally, Supergirl’s National City “Scooby” gang were concerned about said “whammying,” so they crossed over to the alternate dimension that houses Flash and his Central City compatriots. Fortunately, the Flash was also whammied by the Meister and — presto! — the musical crossover was set.

Although the rationale behind the villain’s evil scheme wasn’t entirely coherent — he wanted to drain their powers while making them understand love, or something? — it didn’t need to be. Criss was put in this episode for two reasons: to look good in red suspenders and to sing. And he did both quite well.

[. . . ]

If you’re going to do a musical episode on television and compete with legendary greats like “Once More With Feeling” from “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” or “The Nightman Cometh” installment of “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” the key is to commit.

“The Flash” accomplished this by doubling down with a happy ending that wound up with the title character proposing to his love interest, Iris West (Candice Patton), through song. The number, penned by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (who just won an Oscar for “City of Stars” from “La La Land”), hits hard when the world’s fastest superhero starts crooning “Runnin’ Home to You.”

“Duet” was sweet, sweet cheese. It was a kitten delivering a Hallmark card with the words “you’re purr-fect” spelled out in glitter. But it knew it and steered into the delightful.

In a TV world awash in procedural dramas and murder mysteries, sometimes it feels pretty great to take a song break.


heh.  "To look good in red suspenders."  Razz




This rehearsal looks perfect.  Darren and John Barrowman look perfectly synced in their movements.  I love how sharp Darren's movements are.  Boy has some dance moves! applause


# Repost  flashbehindtheseams Cast had very little time to learn the routine, and John Barrowman learned the choreo that very morning a ½ hour before the crew arrived. Here they are just a few hours later, putting it all on tape. 3x17 “Duet” #theflash #theflashmusical #cwtheflash #behindtheseams #backupdancers #behindthescenes #bts #setlife http://ift.tt/2ncoUO2

I'm also impressed John Barrowman was able to learn the routine 1/2 hour before the the crew arrived to film.





A nice gif set from the episode:
