…live in a pineapple under the sea

Untitled design (17)If you’ve been having a rough Monday, perhaps trying to come to grips with the bizarre, strange, and slightly depressing for humanity as a whole hot mess that was (and usually is) last night’s VMAs on MTV (that I admit I watched, and loved for all of its soul-crushing awfulness…and Taylor Swift who was a beacon of grace and poise in the middle of it all), I have just the news to restore your faith in music and humanity. Prepare yourself for SpongeBob SquarePants: The Musical.It’s happening, and if you don’t think that’s the most amazing thing ever, then begone (before someone drops a house on you).

I can’t say I’m surprised. SpongeBob Frequently bursts into song:

I’ve found that SpongeBob, strangely enough, is a very polarizing character. I’ve also found, that he’s a great litmus test for whether we can be friends or not. If you don’t like SpongeBob I presume that either: A. You’ve never seen SpongeBob and are making an uninformed statement or B: You’re watching it wrong.

Don’t believe me? Consider the incredible group of musicians creating original music for the show, which will debut in Chicago next summer: John Legend, David Bowie, Cyndi Lauper, Dirty Projectors, The Flaming Lips, T.I., Plain White T’s, They Might Be Giants, Lady Antebellum, Panic! At the Disco, and Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler and Joe Perry.

Musical theatre fan out…[mic drop]

    while there can be hits and misses in musical theater, this one’s a no-brainer – SpongeBob was basically a weekly 30-minute (22 minutes) musical…
