The Flash/Supergirl Musical Crossover Features Songs from Rachel Bloom, La La Land Writers

As we near closer and closer to what’s shaping up to be an epic The Flash and Supergirl musical episode, more details about the crossover continue to trickle out.
Buzzfeed has revealed that Crazy Ex-Girlfriend scribe and star Rachel Bloom has penned a song called “Superfriends” for the upcoming crossover.
“As soon as I heard that they were doing a musical crossover, I e-mailed [CW president] Mark Pedowitz who connected me to Greg [Berlanti] and Andrew [Kreisberg],” Bloom said in a statement. “I immediately offered them my services. As soon as they picked one of my song ideas, I hopped on the phone with my old Robot Chicken boss Tom Root and … based on that brainstorm, I wrote up the song ‘Superfriends.’ I am so excited to contribute more to the upward trend that is musicals in television and film. Music can be one of the most amazing and efficient forms of storytelling and character development. Also, it was really fun to write a comedy song for two superheroes.”

To add to the already amazing news, two of La La Land‘s award winning songwriters, Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, have written a song for the episode. The song is called “Runnin’ Home to You,” and it will be performed along with “Superfriends” in the musical crossover episode on The Flash on Tuesday, March 21 at 8/7c.
The musical crossover event kicks off with Supergirl on Monday, March 20 at 8/7c on The CW.
