We’ve had the TV show, the movie, countless video games, Some very, very strange merchandise, and now it’s time for The SpongeBob Musical. On it’s own this does sound a little, however providing the soundtrack for the underwater adventure will be a list of superstars including the great David Bowie.
Our favourite underwater sponge will hit the stage this year in what The Guardian describes as, “a rousing tale of a simple sea sponge who faces the unfathomable. It’s a celebration of unbridled hope, unexpected heroes, and pure theatrical invention.”
Nickelodeon’s Russell Hicks says “music has always been an important part of the show and everyone saw this as a real creative challenge.” Also on the line up are John Legend, Cindi Lauper, Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler and Joe Perry, The Flaming Lips and Panic! At The Disco.
It’s hard to say if the show will become a Broadway classic, either way the audience will have plenty of great music to soak up.
