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. With the help of another demigod, Annabeth Chase (daughter of Athena), and his best friend, Grover Underwood (a satyr), Percy’s quest takes the trio on a journey from Camp Half-Blood in New York to the Underworld in Los Angeles. Normal is a myth when you’re a demigod.
This exuberant, funny, fast-paced, coming-of-age tale about finding your place in the world is entertaining for mere mortals, and filled with things to love for the most ardent of demigod fans.
Nominated for three Drama Desk Awards® including Best Musical, this action-packed theatrical adventure is based on the bestselling Disney-Hyperion novel by Rick Riordan and features a book by Joe Tracz (Netflix series Lemony Snicket: A Series of Unfortunate Events, Be More Chill) and a tuneful pop-rock score by Rob Rokicki (Strange Tales). It was directed by Stephen Brackett (Buyer & Cellar) and choreographed by Patrick McCullum (The Band’s Visit).
