See it if You enjoy being blasted out of your seat by amped music so loud your ears are assaulted !
Don't see it if You don’t enjoy musicals in which the set and costumes and special effects are more entertaining than the actors !
See it if your weed dealer hooked you up with particularly strong stuff recently b/c you'll probably need to be high to enjoy this show.
Don't see it if you're sober and/or don't have young children in tow. I found this to be silly, somewhat grating & highly overrated.
See it if you have no interest in good theater. This is the epitome of what is wrong with modern broadway. Caters to the lowest common denominator.
Don't see it if you like good theater, good music, or want anything but a Times Square "Broadway" show. I hated it so much I left at intermission.
See it if you really like spongebob and you really don't care about the structure of a musical or for the show to feel cohesive
Don't see it if you can't stand theatre for young audiences. This fully feels like they're framing every joke for 8 year olds
See it if You love the show and don’t know other musicals.
Don't see it if You like musical theatre because this show is truly on the list of top 5 worst shows I’ve seen, with a half superbly talented cast.
See it if you like the TV show and know the characters and don't have high expectations.
Don't see it if you're expecting a quality production that feels like a Broadway show (this feels like an amusement park production)
See it if you have nothing else to do and the tickets are free, but then leave at intermission anyway.
Don't see it if you think the story will be as funny as the tv show.
See it if You have kids and want to take them to see something simple but colorful and broadWAY-ish.
Don't see it if You’ve heard this is great even without kids, or expect it to be as funny or witty as the TV classic.
See it if you are just looking for a way to entertain your young kids on your vacation.
Don't see it if You loved the original spongebob. They tried to force a plot the whole second act. Everyone who knows SBSP knows the plots are meaningless
See it if Maybe if you like the tv show or if you want to support some talented actors by keeping them employed. Actor who played spongebob was good.
Don't see it if You’re looking for something with a plot & good music, value your hearing (the female characters all belt with their mics at full volume)
See it if you are a big spongebob fan, you don't want to enjoy your self, you like simple, predictable stories
Don't see it if you have sense, you haven't watched spongebob, you want a compelling, complex story, you can think of anything better to do
See it if You are a fan of the cartoon; if you enjoy commercialized theater; if you enjoy spectacle over substance
Don't see it if You seek a musical with substance; if you seek a thought-provoking musical; if you don't like unruly audiences, as this show attracts them
