As someone who grew up on the OG show, I thought this was fun and pretty true to the original cartoon. A few things I want to address from other low ratings here: 1. This is a Broadway musical, not the actual show. The voices are not going to sound like the ones in the cartoon-- they're Broadway actors. Besides, I thought the voices were pretty good and similar to the show considering they weren't the actors from the show! 2. Sorry there's no explosions or bloody fights to keep your children's attention. Again, this is a musical based on a cartoon-- sorry, no, it's not based on the Bourne series. I don't know what you guys were expecting, but this was a fun, cute musical based on a beloved children's series! Maybe watch the show from season one and then a watch again. I don't know what to tell you guys, except this was a pretty dope musical and the nostalgia was abundant for me. Oh! Squidward was spot on!! And the imagery, effects, costumes... It was all fantastic! Very catchy!
