Nickelodeon has announced the world premiere of 'The SpongeBob Musical' in Chicago next summer with original music from David Bowie, Cyndi Lauper, Steven Tyler and Joe Perry among other a-listers in the music biz. 

The Daily News reports: It is co-conceived and directed by Tina Landau with a book by Kyle Jarrow and music supervision by Tom Kitt. The show will play Chicago’s Oriental Theatre starting June 7 with an eye to Broadway. Producers call it “a rousing tale of a simple sea sponge who faces the unfathomable. It’s a celebration of unbridled hope, unexpected heroes, and pure theatrical invention.”
