Show Biz Buzz Chat: 'The Spongebob Musical' Comes To Philadelphia


Join the Bikini Bottom gang when The Sponge Bob Musical comes to the Forrest Theater as part of Kimmel Center's Broadway Philadelphia season. It's playing tonight thru December 15th…

The Sponge Bob Musical won the 2018 Tony-winning musical and 2019 Best Musical winner of the Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards, and it's inspired by the long-running Nickelodeon TV program that started in 1999.

The actors are not dressed as 'foam' costumed cartoon characters, but rather actual 'human' actors on stage.

The production also features an original pop and rock-infused musical score by a legendary roster of Grammy Award-winning songwriters including Steven Tyler and Joe Perry of Aerosmith, Sara Bareilles, Lady Antebellum, The Flaming Lips, Cyndi Lauper and John Legend among many others.

The production stars several actors with local ties, including Cody Cooley as Squidward, and Zach Kononov as Mr. Krabs. They came to The Breeze studios to chat about the show.

The Show Biz Buzz airs weekday mornings at 6:25 & 7:25 on 106.1 The Breeze.
