Flash / Supergirl Musical: Joe, Cisco, Merlyn & More Roles Revealed

When “The Flash” and “Supergirl” cross over for their first musical episode, Barry Allen and Kara Danvers will be stuck in the Music Meister’s dream world. However, while Barry and Kara are aware of their parts in Music Meister’s play, the other supporting characters will not and play their roles accordingly. Now, Entertainment Weekly has revealed just what parts those characters will play.

According to the report, Joe West (Jesse L. Martin), Martin Stein (Victor Garber) and Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman) will all be rival mob bosses. Earlier this month, executive producer Aaron Helbing said Joe’s daughter Iris will play “a pretty key role in the musical episode,” which makes sense seeing as she’ll be caught between these three mob bosses.

Additionally, Win Schott (Jeremy Jordan) will take on the role of a club pianist, while Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes) becomes an aspiring artist busboy. The action will take place in a ’40s-era nightclub.

“Some things are just star-crossed,” Valdes shared. “Some things are just destined and written in the stars. This felt like one of those instances where it was just something that was going to happen.”

“Ever since they announced the cast of our show — plus the casts of Flash and other shows having so many musical theater people in them — it was only a matter of time before they harnessed those talents and made something into it,” Jordan added.
