After Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker dazzles audiences with its stunning sets and costumes on December 22, the one-of-a-kind musical event, “The SpongeBob Musical” will hit the stage on Christmas Eve with original songs by artists like Gospel musicians, Yolanda Adams; Aerosmith rockers Steven Tyler and Joe Perry; pop sensation, Sara Bareilles; and R&B/Soul crooner John Legend.
