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.
