For all you simpletons who said Spongebob Squarepants was lame, let me tell you, revenge is oh. so. sweet.
The Bob himself is headed to Broadway where he'll star as the subject of his very own musical, aptly titled, "Spongebob Squarepants! The Musical." And that's not all. Glam rocker (and potentially the coolest person alive) David Bowie will be writing some of the music.
Bowie. Spongebob. Music. Magic. Picture it. Just picture it.
The musical, directed and co-created by Tina Landau with a book by Kyle Jarrow and music supervision by Tom Kitt, is slated to show at Chicago’s Oriental Theatre from June 7 to July 3, 2016, before heading to Broadway for the 2016-2017 season.
And that's still not all! Bowie is not the only first rate musical force signed on to tell the age old tale of a sponge living in a pineapple under the sea. The Dirty Projectors, the Flaming Lips, John Legend, Lady Antebellum, Cyndi Lauper, Panic! At the Disco, Plain White T’s and They Might Be Giants are some of the other big deals on board.
Who's laughing now, Spongebob haters? Who is laughing now???
