TheaterWorksUSA and Martian Entertainment are thrilled to announce that The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical, the original musical adaption of Rick Riordan’s New York Times best-selling novel, will arrive on Broadway this fall for a strictly limited 16-week holiday engagement following the recent successful conclusion of its 32-city North American First National Tour which has been celebrated by audiences and critics alike.

With a book by Joe Tracz (Be More Chill) and original music and lyrics by Rob Rokicki (Broadway debut), The Lightning Thief will begin performances Friday, September 20 ahead of a Wednesday, October 16 opening night.

The full original company of the recently-wrapped 2019 tour will bring The Lightning Thief to life on the Broadway stage: Chris McCarrell (Les Miserables) as Percy Jackson, with Izzy Figueroa, Jorrel Javier, Ryan Knowles, Sam Leicht, Sarah Beth Pfeifer, James Hayden Rodriguez, Jalynn Steele, T. Shyvonne Stewart, and Kristin Stokes.

As a son of Poseidon, Percy Jackson has newly discovered powers he can’t control, monsters on his trail, and is on a quest to find Zeus’ lightning bolt to prevent a war between the Greek gods. Based on the best-selling novel by Rick Riordan and featuring a thrilling original rock score, with an onstage company of seven playing more than 47 characters, The Lightning Thief is an action-packed theatrical adventure about accepting that normal is a myth and embracing the superpowers inside all of us.

Casting for The Lightning Thief’s Broadway run will be announced soon.
