DC TV shows have an astonishing amount of musical theatre talent between them, not the least of which is Rent alum Jesse L. Martin as The Flash’s Joe West. We’ve seen The Flash get musical once or twice before, but “Welcome to Earth-2” will finally give the erstwhile Tom Collins his due, judging by the official photos.

The CW released the first set of photos from next Tuesday’s Flash outing, included among them past looks at Danielle Panabaker’s returning Killer Frost, and Robbie Amell’s “Deathstorm” debut. We also catch a glimpse of Earth-2 Barry and Iris, most notably as the parallel Earth’s Joe finally opens up Jesse L. Martin’s famous pipes.

So reads the official “Welcome to Earth-2” synopsis:

BARRY VISITS EARTH-2 – Barry (Grant Gustin), Wells (Tom Cavanagh) and Cisco (Carlos Valdes) journey to Earth-2 to rescue Wells’ daughter, Jesse (guest star Violett Beane) from Zoom. Barry is stunned when he runs into Earth-2 Iris (Candice Patton) and Joe (Jesse L. Martin), but nothing prepares him for meeting Killer Frost (Danielle Panabaker) and Deathstorm (guest star Robbie Amell). Meanwhile, back on Earth-1, Jay (guest star Teddy Sears) has to take over the Flash’s responsibilities when a meta-human nicknamed Geomancer (guest star Adam Stafford) attacks Central City.

The adventure will continue the following week on “Escape from Earth-2,” but will The Flash prove so musical visiting Melissa Benoist in National City? Stay tune for more from the DC drama’s first trip abroad.
