The Lightning Thief: Broadway Show

The Lightning Thief is the latest addition to the Percy Jackson franchise. The Percy Jackson books written by Rick Riordan have created a storm among young readers for the past decade. The books have been adapted into movies and now the musical. Joe Tracz has written the book for the musical, and he is known for his work with another popular musical Be More Chill. The music and lyrics are by Rob Rokicki, while the musical is directed by Stephen Brackett whose previous works include Be More Chill, Significant Other, The Mad Ones, and Buyer & Cellar.

The musical has a cast of seven members who play multiple roles and critics and audiences alike have loved the performance of Chris McCarell who plays Percy. The production uses quirky stage props like toilet paper but does a fantastic job of creating a fantasy world with minimal theatrics. The musical is a must-watch for fans of the Percy Jackson series and a perfect trip down nostalgia lane!

The Lightning Thief: Broadway Story

The Lightning Thief musical follows the journey of Percy Jackson, a half-blood who has a human mother (Sally) and a Greek-god father (Poseidon). He is a troubled teenager who is suffering from ADHD and dyslexia and gets expelled from school on a trip to the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art when he is waylaid by a fury. His mother is not surprised at the expulsion, but her boyfriend Gabe is not as understanding and bullies Percy. Sally tells Percy about his father and how his quirks are nothing but strengths that he should be proud of.

While she is talking to him, a Minotaur kills off Sally and Percy kills him in anger. It turns out Percy’s best friend Grover is a satyr and he accompanies him to Camp Half-Blood which is a place for all kids whose parents are gods. While at camp, he meets kids of other gods like Aphrodite, Demeter, and Ares. Among them is Annabeth, the daughter of Athena, who forms a trio with Percy and Grover. At the camp, Percy is accused of stealing Zeus’s lightning bolt and the three must go on a quest to find it! Watch The Lightning Thief to find out how Percy navigates the underworld and retrieves the bolt!
