The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical

Yep, you read the title right! The author, Rick Riordan, promoted it himself on his social media accounts (despite him not seeing it himself) so I checked it out.

Heyyyy. Percy’s looking real gorgeous, ain’t he? *swoon* Well check him out singing. Lovely voice. The lyrics capture exactly what Percy’s life is all about in the beginning. I am curious how the rest of his life will play out though. Hmm.

I’m pretty much soaking up everything in the Rick Riordan-related fandom (except for Magnus Chase because for some unexplainable reason, I’m still having a hard time reading it). I’ll be supporting every adaptation that is made, and my musically-inclined self is pretty excited about this off-Broadway. Come to think of it, this could draw younger crowd to musical theater again. I saw Matilda on Broadway and the demography was composed of who you would see on a field trip, but it was fun.

For all of you in the U.S., it’s gonna start screening on March 23.

Emma Watson Sings!

You didn’t think the cast of the live movie adaptation would sing, would you?

 

Here’s a sample of Emma Watson’s take on “Something More”:

 

She doesn’t sound like a professional singer, but her sweet voice rings a lot of sincerity in it. Belle’s songs have been sung countless of times before, but could anyone ever replace Angela Lansbury’s “Beauty and the Beast”? Let’s wait and see.
