As the half-blood son of a Greek god, Percy Jackson has newly-discovered powers he can't control, a destiny he doesn't want, and a mythology textbook's worth of monsters on his trail. When Zeus's master lightning bolt is stolen and Percy becomes the prime suspect, he has to find and return the bolt to prove his innocence and prevent a war between the gods. But to succeed on his quest, Percy will have to do more than catch the thief. He must travel to the Underworld and back; solve the riddle of the Oracle, which warns him of betrayal by a friend; and come to terms with the father who abandoned him. Adapted from the best-selling book The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan and featuring a thrilling original rock score, The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical is an action-packed mythical adventure "worthy of the gods" (Time Out New York).

The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical is the "thoroughly endearing family-friendly musical" (Charles Isherwood, Broadway News) with "one foot in Harry Potter and another in Dear Evan Hansen" (Chicago Tribune) this "winning adaptation" (Hollywood Reporter) of Rick Riordan's bestselling Disney-Hyperion novel is "compelling for fans and new audiences alike!" (TheaterMania) Charles Isherwood raved that "The Lightning Thief could be called Hadestown for kids!" (Broadway News)
