The Spongebob Musical


I know, I know, the whole world thinks Hamilton is THE show to see.

You’re all wrong, world.

Because I don’t care how many Tonys that thing has won. There’s NO WAY it’s as good as The Spongebob Musical.

Ok, fine, I’m sure Hamilton IS amazing also, but I’m telling you, Spongebob was tons-o-fun!

And I was able to drink wine during the show. And there was a surprise ending. And one of the characters has four legs!

Bet no one in Hamilton has four legs, right? I’m just saying…

So my family was pretty jazzed when mommy’s work* offered to let us check out The Spongebob Musical  at the Oriental Theater in downtown Chicago.

Ok, enough comparing Hammy to Spongy. Anyway, there are enough nights in the week to see everything, so I’m sticking to Spongebob deets from here on out, um-kay?

So, not only is the story entertaining for kids and parents, but the colorful scenery is stunning, the costumes are really clever, and the music has been created by amazing artists like John Legend, Cyndi Lauper, They Might Be Giants, Steven Tyler and Joe Perry of Aerosmith, Jonathan Coulton, Lady Antebellum, Panic! At The Disco, T.I., and even the late, great David Bowie. Bonus: If you appreciate dancing at all, there is a tap routine that’s a major showstopper!

And the end of the show is super cool–and a BIG surprise for the kids and adults–but I don’t want to spoil a thing, because as much as you keep telling yourself you’re going to see The Spongebob Musical for your children, you’ll leave knowing you had just as much fun as they did.

Really! It’s that good.

*My tickets to the show were comped, however this review is my own opinion. The coincidence that it is a positive one is based on the fact that the show is actually terrific. I will say, I even liked the wine, so bravos all around. I did pay for my own wine. Not that I’m whining.
