A “SpongeBob SquarePants” musical is headed to Broadway in November, with its official opening night on December 4th.
It’s called “The SpongeBob Musical”, and it features original music by Aerosmith members Steven Tyler and Joe Perry, pop singers Sara Bareilles and Jon Legend, country stars Lady Antebellum, and 80’s icon Cyndi Lauper.
The show will also pay homage to the legendary David Bowie using a track from his library as well.
SpongeBob fans will probably remember that Bowie voiced a character called Lord Royal Highness in the 2007 TV movie “SpongeBob’s Atlantis SquarePantis”.
If for some reason the plot matters, here it is: SpongeBob and the rest of Bikini Bottom face, quote, “the total annihilation of their undersea world.” Some of you may remember it had a limited run in Chicago last year.
