The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical
Tickets are on sale now for The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical, which celebrates its Broadway premiere at the Longacre Theatre for a special 16-week limited engagement from September 20, 2019 through January 5, 2020.
The Lightning Thief is the first book of the "Percy Jackson & the Olympians" pentalogy and was published in 2005. It has spent over 500 weeks on the New York Times Bestseller list and even spawned a Hollywood movie adaptation in 2010.
This musical adaptation first premiered off-Broadway at the Lucille Lortel Theatre in the spring of 2017, enjoying a sold-out, six-week run and earning three Drama Desk Award nominations, including "Outstanding Musical." In addition, a North American National Tour was launched in January 2019 in Chicago and played a total of 32 cities, culminating in Boston in July 2019.
As a son of Poseidon, Percy Jackson has newly discovered powers he can’t control, monsters on his trail, and is on a quest to find Zeus’ lightning bolt to prevent a war between the Greek gods. Based on the best-selling novel by Rick Riordan and featuring a thrilling original rock score, with an onstage company of seven playing more than 47 characters, The Lightning Thief is an action-packed theatrical adventure about accepting that normal is a myth and embracing the superpowers inside all of us.
