Opening on Broadway in 2017 and earning 12 Tony nominations, Spongebob Squarepants: The Broadway Musical is getting the Barn Theatre treatment this month in one of its first regional runs. Shows are at 8 pm Tuesday-Saturday and at 5 pm Sundays through August 15. Director Eric Morris and actor Patrick Hunter (Patrick Star) joined Cara Lieurance for a preview.
Morris explains that Spongebob has a completely unique musical score. Each number was written by a different rock, pop, or hip-hop artist -- including David Bowie, Cyndi Lauper, Aerosmith, and Panic! At The Disco. For Patrick Hunter, it's a show all about community and cooperation as the characters come together to save their town.
