The SpongeBob Musical includes original songs by Yolanda Adams, Steven Tyler and Joe Perry of AEROSMITH, Sara Bareilles, Jonathan Coulton, Alex Ebert of Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, The Flaming Lips, John Legend, Lady Antebellum, Cyndi Lauper, Panic! At the Disco, Plain White T’s, They Might Be Giants and T.I., and a song by the late David Bowie. With additional lyrics by Jonathan Coulton.
Young newcomers, fun loving parents, and nostalgia seeking millennials alike were over the moon with excitement as the 17-year spanning television series made its stage debut in Chicago last month.

@Hidden_Rainbows paints a googly-eyed SpongeBob and his beloved pet snail, Gary, “jelly-fishing” in the colorful kelp fields of Bikini Bottom. Beautiful!
This little man has got the right idea! The SpongeBob Musical should consider recruiting @Elliesart42 to face paint attendees on Broadway!

I’ve always wondered what SpongeBob would look like in human form… and I’d say @medosaleta’s illustration is pretty dang close to The SpongeBob Musical actor Ethan Slater!

@jhwilcox brings us this amazing sketch of Mr. Krabs’ cheerleading daughter Pearl; the only thing in the deep blue sea that he loves more than that cash money.
Thanks for all the amazing artwork peeps! Can’t wait to see you all on Broadway for the sure to be epic The SpongeBob Musical (dates and location will be announced at a later time).
