"ONE FOOT IN HARRY POTTER AND ANOTHER IN DEAR EVAN HANSEN." - Chicago Tribune

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 three 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).

The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical

Run Time for The Lightning Thief is approximately 2 hours & 20 minutes inlcuding one intermission.

The Lightning Thief, based on a best-selling young adult novel, takes place in a world where the Greek gods are real and causing a lot of trouble for Percy Jackson (he’s been kicked out of six schools in six years, and has just discovered he’s the son of Poseidon, the god of the sea).  Intrigued by the new powers he’s learning to control and encouraged by the company of other young half-bloods (who lament, “Oh, things couldn’t be worse / When your parents run the universe”), Percy sets off on a quest to find the lightning bolt of Zeus, defeat the monsters following him, and prevent a war between the gods.  He encounters a number of legendary opponents, including the Furies, Medusa, the minotaur, and the shadowy Hades, king of the Underworld.  “Judging from the enthusiastic reactions of the tweens surrounding me, this musical is worthy of the gods.  But with its campy humor, clever no-tech effects, and agreeable pop-rock tunes, it offers pleasures for mere mortal grown-ups, too” (Time Out/New York).

The Lightning Thief is recommended for families with school-aged children, particularly those 8 and older.  Parents are encouraged to peruse the following advisories to ensure that the show is suitable for their family members.

Adult Language:

None. The characters do refer to “Dam snacks,” but this is a reference to Hoover Dam, not a swear word, although it could be mistaken for “damn.”

Violence/Scariness:

The Lightning Thief contains onstage combat with swords and knives; the show also includes monsters, which might be scary for younger children.

Sexual References:

In a song lyric, Sally implies that she and Poseidon conceived Percy on the beach: “He was handsome and strong / And before too long / You came to exist.”  Selena complains of her mother, Aphrodite, the goddess of love:  “I try to seek help / From even the Fates / But she steals my mascara and all of my dates.”

Drugs/Alcohol:

None.

Important Themes:

“I was reading these books in my 20s, but was still figuring out what to do with my life. I’d technically come of age already, but the feeling that you’re living in someone else’s world never really goes away. Young adult fiction depicts that so well.  In Lightning Thief, the Gods have created the world, but then vacated it to hang out at the top of the Empire State Building—leaving the rest of us to figure out where we fit in.”  -- Joe Tracz, author of Lightning Thief’s script
