David Bowie Is Working With SpongeBob SquarePants

It was hard to believe you could do a musical set under the ocean until The Little Mermaid hit the boards on Broadway in 2008.

During the 2016-2017 Broadway season, another show will go under the sea with the SpongeBob Musical and the list of music contributors is quite impressive.

According to Billboard, music is being contributed by David Bowie, Steven Tyler and Joe Perry of Aerosmith, the Flaming Lips, Cyndi Lauper (herself a Tony winner for Kinky Boots), They Might Be Giants, Jonathan Coulton, the Dirty Projectors, John Legend, Lady Antebellum, Panic! at the Disco, The Plain White T’s and T.I.

The show is being written by Kyle Jarrow with direction by Tina Landau (Bells Are Ringing, Superior Donuts) and music supervision by Tom Kitt (High Fidelity, Next to Normal, American Idiot). The Nickelodeon Network is producing.

The SpongeBob Musical will debut on June 7, 2016 at Chicagos Oriental Theatre for a four-week run before a possible move to Broadway.
