Hello old friend. 

That’s what Jesse L. Martin’s gun-toting character said last night to John Barrowman’s gangster coming out of the Moran’s Nightclub set in New Westminster. Then you could hear the rat-tat-tat of the gangster’s two thugs unloading their Tommy guns at Martin & Victor Garber’s fedora-wearing gents. What’s going on? It’s a mystery now but this 1940s-style gangsters & guns sequence is part of The Flash/Supergirl musical crossover.

John Barrowman’s gangster sweeps out of Moran’s nightclub with his two goons. Wearing a full-length camel coat, he walks towards the snaking technocrane for a closeup.

Production spent three days this week in New Westminster’s former Famous Players theatre The Columbia as Moran’s Nightclub. Fans spotted Supergirl’s Melissa Benoist coming out looking like Marvel’s Peggy Carter and The Flash’s Grant Gustin in a slick suit.

Could these headliners at Moran’s Nightclub be their crossover characters?
