What I thought of The SpongeBob Musical: Live on Stage!
When I first heard about The SpongeBob Musical: Live on Stage!, I was honestly curious how this would play out for the highly imaginative show. And then I heard the soundtrack. The music is phenomenal. I knew I wanted to see it, but never got the opportunity to see it live. When we were offered the chance to review the DVD, I very eagerly accepted.
We popped the DVD in and had no idea what we were in store for. The SpongeBob Musical: Live on Stage! was very well done. The cast was very talented, but the music was beyond excellent. The costuming and props really grabbed our attention. It was not hard to know who the characters were.
Now, I will warn you…this is still Spongebob. The storyline itself is an overly exaggerated episode, with the show itself running approximately 115 minutes. That is a LOT of Spongebob. But, the music is stellar and worth listening to.
The overall message of teamwork and friendship that The SpongeBob Musical: Live on Stage! shares with its audience makes it something your whole family should see. I would say that the show was appropriate for all ages. There were no suggestive or overly obnoxious parts that we observed, which was a refreshing change from the cartoon version.
