The next episode of The Goldbergs is titled “The Greatest Musical Ever Written.” In it, Adam (Sean Giambrone) tries out for theater and Barry (Troy Gentile) makes fun of him for it. But he then learns that his girlfriend Lainey (AJ Michalka) will have to kiss Adam in the musical and decided to join the stage crew. Erica (Hayley Orrantia) thinks that she’s having a breezy school year, while Beverly (Wedni McLendon-Covey) decides to make a class a living hell for her students.

Here’s the official description from ABC:

Barry makes fun of Adam for wanting to be in theater, but he suddenly becomes jealous when he discovers Adam and Lainey were cast in roles where they kiss each other. Barry joins the stage crew to sabotage the production, causing a rift between Barry and Adam. Meanwhile, Erica is excited for it to be her most relaxed school year ever until Beverly substitute teaches her most easy class and makes it a nightmare for her and other students.

By the way, this season of The Goldbergs has had two famous faces on the team as directors. Creator Adam F. Goldberg hired Back to the Future‘s Lea Thompson and Growing Pains‘ Joanna Kerns to direct episodes. Thompson directed the November 16 episode, “Ho-ly K.I.T.T.”

“Make no mistake, I hired them for their directing skills,” Goldberg told the Hollywood Reporter. “I’ve always believed actors make for good directors, and these women were two of my favorites growing up. I was thrilled when I found out they might both be able to do our show. Although I admit it wasn’t easy to keep from harassing them with questions about their shows and movies.”
