SpongeBob's David Zinn Brings TheaterMania Into His Tony-Nominated Set
The Palace Theater is transformed into the underwater wonderland of Bikini Bottom.
When SpongeBob SquarePants came to town, the Palace Theatre was transformed into the imaginative, immersive wonderland known as Bikini Bottom. Audiences owe a lot of that experience to Tony-nominated scenic and costume designer David Zinn, who took TheaterMania on a walking tour of his mammoth set, complete with boom boxes, Rube Goldberg contraptions, baby pools, and a whole lot of SpongeBob merchandise. Here's your chance to go backstage and get an up-close view of his handiwork.
