About the show

The action-packed musical adaptation of Rick Riordan's best-selling young-adult fantasy novel comes to the Huntington Avenue Theatre.  More…

From the show:

This "winning adaptation" (The Hollywood Reporter) of the best-selling Disney-Hyperion novel by Rick Riordan, The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical is “a colossal, crowd-pleasing hit of Herculean proportions!” (Broadwayworld.com). 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 is on an epic quest to find Zeus's lightning bolt to prevent a war between the gods. Nominated for 3 Drama Desk Awards including Best Musical, The Lightning Thief “hits the sweet spot” (Wall Street Journal) and provides “a spectacularly fun adventure that will thrill everyone in the family!” (Chicago Parent).

Underdeveloped characters, Fun, Campy

See it if You like The Lightning Thief & don’t mind a very campy yet kind of fun show that makes you think ok that wasn’t much of anything good or bad

Don't see it if You want a good show. It’s merely okay and if you're a stickler for correct Greek mythology this ain’t it

Also The feel was very rock concert but if the concert was kids bop

55
Disappointing, Confusing, Banal

See it if You are a teenager and a fan of the book or movie. Camp half blood fans will like it

Don't see it if You’re above 25 years or don’t know anything about the book or movie. You will neither understand nor find it entertaining. It’s for kids.
