Preview: The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical at Broadway Sacramento
Percy’s just your average teenager, until he’s blamed for stealing Zeus’ lightning bolt and attacked by a slew of mythical creatures. Broadway Sacramento brings to the stage The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical, an adaptation of the YA novel series Percy Jackson and the Olympians. Thrust into a whole new realm where he discovers that he’s half-god, half-human, it’s up to Percy to clear his name and prevent a war from breaking out. It’s the classic hero’s journey, like that one time Odysseus set sail for Ithaca after the Trojan War, but with less wandering and more musical dance numbers.
