The Palace Theater is renovating and apparently (tho not said by the producers) its underperforming financially. It closes on September 16th. In better news, fans who have wanted to see the show but couldn't get to NY will now hopefully be able to see it and not have to take a trip to the city and pay for expensive tickets.

 

(I'm personally hoping this means nick will do a dvd or bluray release. I'd buy it.)

That’s a bummer. I was hoping there’d be a world tour so I could see it officially, but I’m happy it was so acclaimed.

lmao they never said they weren't doing a world tour. Just the national tour is next (like most broadway shows).

Sad, but I hope this does mean a professionally recorded version will be released. I got to see this a few months ago and it was AWESOME!!! I’m not a huge musical fan, but I am a huge SpongeBob fan and it had great songs, great story, great acting, and great humor, so it was a lot of fun to see!!!

It always sounded too overbearing for me, I never liked these musical theater performances just because of how "Broadwayish" they felt. I'm sure that's good thing for some people, but I just can't find myself seeing it as that great, so I end up not feeling too sad about it. This is all speculation, and if it really is awesome feel free to prove me wrong, but it's just a little too tacky for my tastes.

Also just a anecdote I keep forgetting to bring up on here. But did you notice that there's barely any discussion of this musical post launch and that the musical's fanbase is obviously different from the show.

That is definitely something that’s made me a bit less down about its closing. I remember a thread about that one raging fangirl, but otherwise yeah, it seems like it’s its own entity split from the TV show, which comes with its pros and cons.

I would love to go see this musical! Maybe I’ll have to team up with the fam and get tickets to see it. It’s a shame that it’s not on Broadway anymore, but the musical will still continue to be enjoyed by fans across the nation. :) Hopefully a world tour will be coming soon!

EDIT: It was Neptune's Spatula. It's the part where Neptune says, "A royal fry cook's wallet contains..."  The version I put on my post was a trace/recolor.
