CW's Flash and Supergirl musical cross-over apparently set in the '30s?

I'm a sucker for musicals, especially when it involves superheroes. Case in point one of my favorite moments in JUSTICE LEAGUE: UNLIMITED, where Batman has to sing to save Wonder Woman:

So I'm excited about the upcoming musical cross-over between Grant Gustin's THE FLASH and Melissa Benoist's SUPERGIRL (both veteran's of GLEE). They are each joined by another GLEE-alum Darren Criss as the Music Meister. Here's the official synopsis:

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.

And here's a teaser to whet our (or maybe just my) appetite:

Looks fun. But I am surprised to see them evoking the '30s in this. I mean, I know that was the age of the Broadway musicals, and it's also an alternate reality and all, but still. I just hope they get to use their powers in this time-period at some point before they get to the real world (because SPOILERS they are gonna make it back).

But what do you Schmoes think? You down for a musical episode? And if so, what's your favorite musical episode from any TV show (I already call dibs on BUFFY).

Meanwhile, SUPERGIRL and FLASH will sing their super-hearts out March 21st.
