Forget the two bad film adaptations of Rick Riordan’s best-selling novel series, because Netflix is working hard to fix it. In the meantime, you can sing along to Percy and his demigod quests, because Percy Jackson is hitting Broadway!
Starting Sept. 20, and officially opening Oct. 16, The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical will hold performances at the Longacre Theatre in New York.
The musical has original music and lyrics by Rob Rokicki, and a book by Joe Tracz based on Riordan’s first book in the Percy Jackson & the Olympians series. It was a 2017 success at the Lucille Lortel Theatre, and recently finished a 32-city North American tour.
Percy was previously played by Chris McCarrell, his mother by Carrie Compere, and Jonathan Raviv played Poseidon, Percy’s father. Casting for the Broadway run will be announced soon. Are you ready for a musical quest?
