Have you ever come across an idea you thought was gonna be bad but it turns out well in the end? This is what you get when you turn an animated series that should've ended right now into a Broadway musical.

Now when I was a kid, I was a huge fan of SpongeBob SquarePants. I'm not the biggest fan of the show nowadays mostly because they dumbed it down for children, but only rare now is a modern episode good. :/

I'm also a fan of stage musicals. I went to a lot of them and I enjoy all kinds, whether they'd be amateur or professional.

When I heard of a musical based on SpongeBob was happening, I thought "Oh my god this is gonna blow," cause this is SpongeBob on Broadway! How can you make an idea like this good?! Luckily they did. They had various artist do the songs like Steven Tyler and Joe Perry of Aerosmith, Panic! At the Disco, Plain White T's, John Legend, Alex Ebert and even the rapper T.I and features "No Control" by David Bowie! Sounds like some good people. :nod:

The costumes are also well done. I got Seussical vibes from them because you can look at the costumes and tell who they're supposed to be, my favorite being Squidward. The actor who plays him wears specially made pants that gives him extra legs and I think it looks cool. ;)

Overall, I did hear good things about it, and maybe if they play their cards right, it can be a good musical based on a cartoon like You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown and The Addams Family. :fingerscrossed:

Well, I like his design pretty good. They didn’t have to go overboard. All they really have to do was give him his clothes and his claws and there you go.

Yeah but i feel like dying his hair and his beard in that shade of red is bit off, I think a more darker red would have made it work

Well, Mr. Krabs is red to be fair. My favorite costume I will say is Squidward. :D

Yeah, I have to agree, I do like Patrick’s design. The main reason I like Squidward's is because of how they did his legs. ;)

You do realize I'm somebody who HATES SpongeBob with a burning passion, therefore a Broadway Stage musical based on SpongeBob WOULD be considered a nightmare for me?
