SpongeBob SquarePants places the characters of the Nickelodeon cartoon series in an original story set in Bikini Bottom, where the stakes are higher than ever as the undersea community faces total annihilation. The show features a book by Kyle Jarrow and a score arranged by Tom Kitt, featuring original songs from a plethora of recording artists, including Cyndi Lauper, John Legend, Sara Bareilles, Panic! At the Disco, and the late David Bowie.
