The Lightning Thief TicketsThe Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical is based on the 2005 fantasy novel by Rick Riordan. Drawing heavily upon Greek mythology adapted into the modern world, the book tells the story of the teenage Percy Jackson. Although diagnosed with dyslexia and ADHD, Jackson discovers that he is the key to preventing a war between the gods. The book spawned a 2010 film directed by Chris Columbus that starred Logan Lerman, Alexandra Daddario, Sean Bean, Steve Coogan, Pierce Brosnan, Rosario Dawson, Uma Thurman, Catherine Keener and Kevin McKidd. Screenwriter Joe Tracz, who also worked on A Series of Unfortunate Events and the Lights Out TV series, wrote the screenplay for the musical. Rob Rokicki composed all of the original songs and lyrics as well.
