Vibrant sets and costumes. Eclectic music by today’s top artists. An erupting underwater volcano. A brilliant talking squirrel from Texas. And an ever-optimistic walking, talking, singing and dancing yellow sea sponge. THE SPONGEBOB MUSICAL checks every box one wants in a Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Best Musical award winner! While young (and slightly less young) fans of the animated series will delight in recognizing their favorite characters from the most popular animated series of the 2000’s reveling in their crazy antics, the musical’s creative team took great care to infuse the show with thematic elements and humor specifically targeting adult theatre-goers. It’s a blow out in Bikini Bottom, and everyone’s invited!
