The SpongeBob SquarePants Musical Will Open This Year!

June 5, 2017

The "pineapple under the sea" better call a moving van. SpongeBob SquarePants and his friends will be moving to Broadway this fall. 

The musical version of Spongebob SquarePants will open at the  Palace Theater in New York this fall. Previews of the show are expected to begin on November 6, and opening night is slated for December 4. Tickets for performances actually go on sale later this month. 

The SpongeBob Musical made its debut in Chicago last year. The show had generally positive reviews from fans and critics. Several of the show's original Chicago actors will work on the show in New York. This does include Ethan Slater, who made his debut as the show's title character in Chicago. 

The musical features original songs from Panic! At The Disco, Aereosmith, Cyndi Lauper, Sara Bareilles, John Legend, David Bowie, and more.
