THE SPONGEBOB MUSCIAL IS
THE SPONGEBOB MUSCIAL IS
A FAMILY FEEL GOOD MUSICAL ABOUT THE END OF THE WORLD!!!
Standout numbers include I'm Not A Loser - a classic kick line tap dancing ensemble backing Squidward Q. Tentacles, a loveably unloveable character who turns the plight of the misunderstood, unsung character into a spectacular four-legged creature that everyone loves to hate and hates to love. Cody Colley takes the part of Squidward and milks every musical move and moment for all its worth. A collision between Busby Berkeley and A Chorus Line, his feature number is a fabulous culmination of a two hour, one intermission, high power non-stop tour de force of fun and fantastical frolic.
A seamless ensemble brings the breakneck pace of this astounding musical tour de force to life with impeccable executed choreography, music, and physical gags galore.The Sponginess of SpongeBob becomes a metaphor for all the nuance and splashiness that this extravagant and crowd pleasing show absorbs from every classic Broadway musical that has come before it.
Lorenzo Pugliese in the title role showcases his amazing vocal range as he sings dances and leads the story of an apocalyptic moment in the lives of Bikini Bottom inhabitants. His strong vocals move effortlessly from powerhouse belting out to quiet moments that possess a childlike storytelling quality - providing a contrast that warms the heart with memorable moments, finding a wonderful finale near the end of act two when a supposed doomsday moment is represented in the song BEST DAY EVER.

The perfect holiday musical for the times, when it is hard to feel good about a world on the brink, SPONGEBOB THE MUSICIAL moves from the brink and back again over and over in this magically apocalyptic musical pastiche of glorious sight and sound.
