Tony Award nominee and Drama Desk winner Kathleen Chalfant (Angels in America, Wit, "House of Cards"), Teal Wicks (Jekyll and Hyde, Wicked), Stephen DeRosa (HBO's "Boardwalk Empire"), Josh Grisetti (Enter Laughing) and Matthew Schechter (Act One) have joined the lineup of artists who will take part in Theatreworks USA's benefit concert of the new musical The Lightning Thief.
Directed by Stephen Brackett and choreographed by Sam Pinkleton, The Lightning Thief will be held April 21 at 7 PM at Off-Broadway's Lucille Lortel Theatre.
Based on the first book in the best-selling Percy Jackson and The Olympians series by Rick Rorian, The Lightning Thief features a book by Joe Tracz with music and lyrics by Rob Rokicki.
The musical, according to press notes, is the "story of Percy, a 12-year-old boy who journeys into a world of mythological monsters and Greek Gods as he struggles with dyslexia and ADHD, and coming to terms with a father he has never known, while solving the mystery of Zeus' stolen lightning bolt."
The concert will support Theatreworks USA's annual Free Summer Theatre Program, which provides free live theatre to more than 15,000 kids in New York City each summer.
