Won the lottery for the ticket. Great seats. Centre orchestra. Great production with awesome set. True to the cartoon. No surprises on the story line: Spongebob being the hero with his friends. But great musical nonetheless.

So I went to NYC with my seven year old daughter and saw this show on a whim. FYI I'm not a fan of the television show and expected this to be similarly filled with bathroom jokes and silly slapstick humor. I was mistaken. Although...More

There should have been a warning when purchasing tickets that if your under 4 feet tall you cannot see the stage. I would have paid more so my 3 kids could see the stage. Very crowded, 2 stalls in bathroom and loud. Show overall was...More
