Back in April I was invited to see a dress rehearsal of this production and I was very impressed. It is a lot of fun for both adults and kids.
The show is free, but tickets need to be picked up at the box office and only a limited number are available to the general public. We also recommend bringing some cash if you want to provide a donation to the theater company.
Tickets for a particular show need to be picked up THAT DAY and the box office opens at 9:30am. Each person can request up to 4 tickets.
(yes, I have looked into group reservations, they are unfortunately not an option for us).
If you are able to pick up tickets for other people, please make arrangements in the comments below.
Synopsis from the website:
Let Theatreworks take you into a world with gods, monsters, and heroes! The Lightning Thief is a new musical adapted from the book, “Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief”, by Rick Riordan. With the rights provided by Twentieth Century Fox, and through a special arrangement with the Lucille Lortel Theatre, Theatreworks is excited to bring this new musical adaptation to children and families in New York, with book by Joe Tracz and music and lyrics by Rob Rokicki, choreographed by Sam Pinkleton and directed by Stephen Brackett. The Lightning Thief features Percy Jackson, the 12-year-old son of Poseidon, who gets pulled into an unfamiliar, mythological world full of treacherous encounters and challenges thrust upon him by the Greek Gods. Percy struggles with dyslexia and ADHD, coming to terms with a father he has never known, and solving the mystery of Zeus' stolen lightning bolt, alongside his two best friends Grover and Annabeth.
