SpongeBob SquarePants: The Musical
To bring the show to life, Nickelodeon brought together a team of top talents. The Flaming Lips’ singer Wayne Coyne contributed lyrics, as did John Legend, Lady Antebellum, and members of Aerosmith. Even rock icon David Bowie adapted one of his own songs to fit the undersea setting. Fans may be surprised by the musical’s carefully crafted looks and style, as costume designers chose not to hide the actors under mascot-style masks. SpongeBob and friends are incredibly expressive cartoon characters, and their live counterparts are able to convey those beloved personalities while still retaining the show’s technicolor visuals. The sets have also been praised for their vibrant reimagining of the cartoon’s underwater landscape, with neon hues and whimsical flower shapes.
From Nicktoons to Showtunes
The musical premiered in the summer of 2016 at Chicago’s Oriental Theatre. It then enjoyed a successful run on Broadway before a refreshed cast embarked on a U.S. tour. Critics in major cities have already celebrated the production’s humor and charm, and SpongeBob has taken home several awards along the way. Since its premiere, the musical has won six Drama Desk Awards, four Outer Critics Circle Awards, and even a prized Tony Award for its scenic design.
