The Electrifying Off-Broadway Musical Heads Out On Tour

Lightning struck Off-Broadway theater Lucille Lortel's stage in the form of The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical in early 2017. The updated hit musical garnered three Drama Desk Award nominations including Outstanding Musical and now bringing its action, magic and music to a theater near you on a mammoth US tour beginning this fall.

Based on the cult-classic Young Adult novel by acclaimed fantasy author Rick Riordan (which also spawned a feature film), the production may be aimed at a younger audience, but its self-aware humour, ubpeat pop rock score and satisfying special effects make it perfect for older mortals too.

What is The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical About?

Life is tough enough when you're going though puberty, but Percy Jackson's not only only facing teendom with ADHD and dyslexia, he's just discovered he's a demi-god, son of the God Of the Sea Poseidon. In this epic coming of age tale, Greek myths are very much real! When Jackson's human mom is kidnapped and the lightning bolt of Zeus is stolen by malevolent forces, the wonderkid and his newfound friends go on a quest to set the world to rights.
