This show will thrill audiences of all ages and will create a new crop of mythology lovers in one fell swoop.
Creating the StoryInitially, The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical was a short, one-hour musical. The success of that show encouraged the show’s creators to produce a full-length musical based on the original. In turn, this required the show’s composer, Rob Rokicki, to rework his original show. However, it wasn’t a matter of just adding on a piece here or there until the show became the full-length show that it is today. Rather, it required Rokicki to think about the nuances and complexities of each character in order to really honor the source material and bring Percy Jackson to life. It also required him to cut out songs like "In the Same Boat," even though they played an important role in the first production.
