Fans of the music of “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” are in luck. The CW will offer a final opportunity to see the cast perform the original songs from the show following its series finale in April.
Set to air on Friday, April 5 immediately after the finale, the special, titled “Yes, It’s Really Us Singing: The ‘Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’ Concert Special!” will feature Rachel Bloom and the rest of the cast performing live versions of fan-favorite songs along with staging, multimedia visuals and a live band and orchestra.
“The songwriters of ‘Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,’ Rachel Bloom, Jack Dolgen and Adam Schlesinger, have written more than 150 outstanding songs in our four seasons. It is an unprecedented contribution to the American songbook. I’m so thrilled we can share those songs with the world in a spontaneous format that really showcases their humor and genius,” co-creator and showrunner Aline Brosh McKenna said in a statement.
The concert special is set to be taped in Los Angeles in March.
“Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” from co-creators Bloom and McKenna, was renewed for a fourth and final season by The CW last year, keeping in line with the original four-chapter pitch for the romantic musical dramedy.
“We always had an idea of what the end scene is. All of that’s never changed. Obviously, some of the particulars have changed, but we’ve always been very clear about the journey,” McKenna said in an interview with TheWrap earlier this season.
From CBS Television Studios and Warner Bros. Television, “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” is executive produced by McKenna, Bloom, Marc Webb, Erin Ehrlich, Michael Hitchcock, Sarah Caplan and Jack Dolgen. The series stars Bloom, Vincent Rodriguez III, Donna Lynne Champlin, Pete Gardner, Vella Lovell, Scott Michael Foster, Skylar Astin and Gabrielle Ruiz.
