Got Any Questions for Two 'SpongeBob SquarePants' Stars?

Date: Mar 02, 2018

Join Wesley Taylor and Stephanie Hsu in a live online chat


For our third Facebook Live artist chat, we're getting the undersea scoop on the hit Broadway musical SpongeBob SquarePants from two of its stars, Wesley Taylor and Stephanie Hsu, who play Bikini Bottom's resident BFF baddies Plankton and Karen. During this live conversation, you -- the fans -- get to ask the questions. Want to know if they've ever had any hilarious onstage mishaps? Or whether they were fans of the cartoon before getting cast? Or what's the craziest thing an audience member has done during the show? (Considering the TV series' fan base is kids and stoners, you know there's got to be a good story there.) Then join us live on Friday, March 9 at 12:30pm on TDF's Facebook page for a 20-minute dialogue with these performers as they answer your queries in real time.

Don't do Facebook? Don't worry: You can post your questions in advance in the comments below and then watch a recording of the talk, which we'll publish on TDF Stages the next week. Even if you haven't seen SpongeBob SquarePants (FYI: member tickets are currently available!) there's still plenty to chat about. I mean, Taylor was on NBC's Smash! I could personally spend 20 minutes just asking him about that. Plus it's exciting that after years of performing Off-Off Broadway, Hsu is finally on Broadway. I gave her a rave review seven years ago when she played a feminist Little Red Riding Hood in a wacky kids' show so I feel personally invested in her career. Whatever you want to ask these actors, go ahead and help us start the conversation!
