The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical

The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical is "worthy of the gods!" (Time Out New York). The Greek gods are real, and they're ruining Percy Jackson's life. As a son of Poseidon, Percy has newly discovered powers he can't control, monsters on his trail, and he is on an epic quest to find Zeus's lightning bolt and prevent a war between the gods. Normal is a myth when you're a demigod. This "winning adaptation" (The Hollywood Reporter) of the best-selling Disney-Hyperion novel by Rick Riordan is "electrifying!" (Newsday). Featuring a "fast-paced, decibel blasting" score (The Broadway Blog), this musical is "mesmerizing" and proves "lightning can strike twice!" (TheaterMania).
