See it if you enjoy adventure fare decidedly aimed at teens and adolescents. I do; we were all kids once!
Don't see it if you want highbrow drama or something designed to appeal to theater’s demographic of the past/present, rather than audiences of the future.
See it if you're familiar with the Percy Jackson books and movies. The entire story is told with minimal sets. The cast was very good.
Don't see it if you have no clue who Percy Jackson is. More mature audiences may not get what's going on, but may still enjoy some of the catchy songs.
