Featured Reviews For SpongeBob SquarePants


Review: 'SpongeBob SquarePants' now swims with the Broadway sharks - Chicago Tribune
It's a lot. You may have a headache. You may be encouraged in the view that kids cable franchises are best done in arenas with actors being forced to stick their heads inside animated costumes, if they are to be done at all. I think "SpongeBob" deserved and got more, and this is a sincere endeavor to elevate his gestalt. Not every attempt at singularity works - familiar tropes in the storytelling sometimes rear up and squelch the freshness - but, in its best moments, it is very much its own thing. Proudly so.

THEATER REVIEW: 'SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS' - NY1
Given the cartoon's manic vibe, it seemed impossible to me that "SpongeBob" would fly - or make that swim - on the stage. How to translate the wacky animated creatures into live bodies was an obviously daunting task, not to mention capturing the rather subversive humor that children find so appealing. Well, hats off to director Tina Landau and her gifted company for being able to ride the wave so entertainingly. Enhanced by pitch-perfect sound effects, they managed to replicate the loony shenanigans of the Bikini Bottom dwellers, all the while making it somewhat palatable for adult tastes.

One of the unsung heroes of SpongeBob SquarePants' success on Broadway is the show's foley artist Mike Dobson. Providing whimsical sound effects to the zany action in Bikini Bottom, Dobson helps transport the audience at the Palace Theatre to the incredible world created by Tina Landau and her team.
