The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical on Broadway Tickets

Longacre Theatre

Mythic adventure The Lightning Thief is set to thrill audiences on Broadway as it transfers to the Longacre Theatre. Based on Rick Riordan’s popular young adult series and co-created by the team behind <em>Be More Chill</em>, this epic musical begins previews on September 20 2019.

After successful runs Off-Broadway and on tour, mythic musical adaptation The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical is heading for Broadway. Described as having "one foot in Harry Potter and another in Dear Evan Hansen" (Chicago Tribune), the musical is based on Rick Riordan’s best-selling young adult series.

Percy Jackson has plenty to worry about – high school, grades, growing up – but there’s something that trumps it all: he’s the son of Greek god Poseidon. With newfound powers and monsters snapping at his heels, Percy and his friends must embark on an epic quest to retrieve Zeus’ lightning bolt and prevent all-out war.

The Lightning Thief is adapted from Riordan’s books by Joe Tracz (Be More Chill), who provides the book, and Rob Rokicki, who writes the music and lyrics. The transfer marks Rokicki’s Broadway debut.

Other creatives include director Stephen Brackett, who was most recently represented by Be More Chill, and choreographer Patrick McCollum (The Band’s Visit).

The musical's touring cast is set to transfer, with Chris McCarrell (Les Misérables) starring as Percy. Jorrel Javier Izzy Figueroa, Sam Leicht, Ryan Knowles, James Hayden Rodriguez, Jalynn Steele, T. Shyvonne Stewart, Sarah Beth Pfeifer and Kristin Stokes also appear.

Brush up on your mythic monsters and get ready to join Percy Jackson on a legendary adventure. The Lightning Thief begins previews at the Longacre Theatre on September 20 2019, with opening night set for October 16.

Cute & funny with good acting but felt more like an off broadway production. Very small cast of six who played multiple roles each which was ok but with more actors it would of helped the flow of the show. Stage set was minimal and looked pretty chea Read more

It was a fun and cute show, even if it wasn't amazing. I felt that it really matched the vibe of the book that I grew up reading.
