Ethan Slater, Lilli Cooper, and Tina Landau on Bringing Bikini Bottom to the Stage

SpongeBob SquarePants and his gang of undersea misfit pals are coming to Broadway's Palace Theatre this winter in a new musical unlike anything audiences have ever seen. Director Tina Landau has completely reimagined the animated world of Bikini Bottom for the stage, while book writer Kyle Jarrow has crafted a story that he describes as "Armageddon meets Our Town." As for the score? It's written by some of the most iconic musicians of this generation: Aerosmith, Cyndi Lauper, and John Legend, among them. What does it take to transform an animated television series into a Broadway musical? Landau, Jarrow, and stars including Ethan Slater and Lilli Cooper, fill us in.
