About the show

How did a “simple sponge” became a Broadway smash hit, nominated for twelve Tony awards? The musical’s creators will answer this question and more at our special “Stage and Screen: SpongeBob SquarePants” Experience! More…

Bookwriter Kyle Jarrow and Executive Producer Susan Vargo are joining Show-Score at SVA Theatre for a “incredible, exceptional, extraordinary” event. We’ll watch some of the TV episodes that inspired the musical (Imagine - Bikini Bottom, on the big screen!) and Director Tina Landau’s spectacular TEDTalk about her vision for the show. And if that doesn’t make for the best day ever, we’ll also have an in-person Q&A with Kyle and Susan- so you'll get to meet key members of the creative team responsible for bringing a little "nautical nonsense" to the Great White Way!
