The SpongeBob SquarePants Musical Will Feature Music by David Bowie, They Might Be Giants & More
Not only is there a Spongebob Squarepants musical in development, with Tina Landau and music supervisor Tom Kitt on board, the music will be composed by David Bowie (who voiced the character Lord Royal Highness on the show many years ago), as well as several other musical artists with names you’ll likely recognize: Cyndi Lauper, They Might Be Giants, John Legend, the Flaming Lips, Dirty Projectors, Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler and Joe Perry, T.I., Jonathon Coulton, Panic! At The Disco, Plain White T’s, and Lady Antebellum.
So, the soundtrack for this Broadway-bound musical will run the gamut from punk to twang to pop to nerdcore to rock n’ roll to hip-hop? Yes. Awesome. The show will debut in Chicago in June 2016, then head for the bright lights of New York City after that.
