From the show:
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.

See it if you’re a “Good Kid” or just a kid at heart. The cast is earnest, the jokes are endearingly corny & the show is as scrappy as its characters.
Don't see it if you expected new bells and whistles for the Broadway staging. This is the same show that toured the country.
