As It Turns Out, Spongebob Isn’t the Only One With Angst In the New Musical
- Plankton and Karen are overcoming their marriage problems
- Patrick feels like he’s never listened to/underappreciated
- Sandy is alienated from the rest of the town because of her eccentricities
- Squidward has some serious self-esteem issues (and I’m like 90% sure his irritability and depression stems from the death of his mother???? Like what happened I need to know dammit)
- Pearl is neglected by her dad
- Mrs. Puff is a goddamn alcoholic (no real surprise there but holy shit they actually confirmed it)
Like yeah it’s a mostly upbeat musical but holy shit it gets dark????
