Among the various revelations? The first official look at Glee alum Darren Criss as the Music Meister, which you can see above, and more photos from the episode in the attached image gallery.

The character of Music Meister doesn't actually come from teh comics; rather, he was created for the Batman: The Brave and the Bold animated series, and originally voiced by Neil Patrick Harris, who was briefly rumored to be under consideration for The Flash as well, although it appears those rumors were never true (certainly Harris indicated he never entered into talks for the part).

Actors who will sing in the musical include Grant Gustin (Barry Allen/The Flash), Jesse L. Martin (Detective Joe West), and Carlos Valdes (Cisco Ramon/Vibe), Melissa Benoist (Kara Danvers/Supergirl), Jeremy Jordan (Winn Schott), Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow's John Barrowman (Malcolm Merlyn) and Legends' Victor Garber (Martin Stein) -- as well as probably Criss.

Songs from the episode will be penned by fellow CW star Rachel Bloom (creator of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend), as well as the recent Oscar-winning duo of La La Land.

You can check out the official synopsis below:

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.

Dermott Downs directed the episode with story by Greg Berlanti & Andrew Kreisberg and teleplay by Aaron Helbing & Todd Helbing (#317). Original airdate 3/21/2017.
