Spongebob Squarepants has been a staple in children's television for more than 15 years — and now, all your fave characters are ditching the Ocean and heading to the Broadway stage!

The pre-Broadway tryout of The SpongeBob Musical is currently in previews at the Oriental Theatre in Chicago, and according to the first production photos, the Bikini Bottom gang is looking a LOT different than we're used to!

Broadway in Chicago just released the first official photos of the musical adaptation, featuring Danny Skinner as Patrick, Lilli Cooper as Sandy, Gavin Lee as Squidward, and Ethan Slater as the titular sponge.

Though the first thing fans will notice upon looking at the photos is the lack of sponges, starfish, squids, and squirrels and instead find human depictions of their favorite undersea characters.

Director and co-creator Tina Laundau said she's "not interested in putting on a theme-park show," recently telling Time Out:

Bless James Corden.

If you thought Sunday's Tony Awards were sheer perfection, wait till you see what the late night TV host made the A-listers do during commercial breaks! HA.

As you surely know, Mr. Corden's show on CBS has become quite the viral sensation with its VERY popular Carpool Karaoke bit where they take famous musicians (and the occasional actor) for a sing-a-long session in a car. Well, the British funnyman brought this concept with him to the biggest night in musical theater — only sans the car.

In fact, the 37-year-old was able to convince Jake Gyllenhaal and Sean Hayes to perform Disney ballad A Whole New World together. Oh, you think we're kidding???

Be sure to ch-ch-check out the HIGHlarious bit for yourself (below)!

It's Hollywood meets Broadway, baby!

We love the Tony Awards because the red carpet always seems so much more elegant (or daring, if you're Cate Blanchett)!

Lupita Nyong'o was a clear fave for best dressed, and Sara Bareilles' hair cultivated MAJOR envy, but they weren't the only ones standing out Sunday night…

While Hamilton lived up to expectations by SLAYING their performance and winning several awards, there were plenty of other memorable musical moments that didn't have ANYTHING to do with the Broadway phenomenon. Hey, it's not called the Hamil-tonys. LOLz!
