Following a national tour, The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical opens at Broadway’s Longacre Theatre October 16 after beginning performances September 20. On October 10, the cast gathered for a performance at the Empire State Building; the iconic Manhattan skyscraper plays a crucial role in both the musical and the best-selling Rick Riordan series that serves as its basis.
The entire company of the recently wrapped 2019 tour reprise their roles on Broadway. The cast is led by Chris McCarrell (Les Misérables) as Percy Jackson, a young man who discovers he is the son of gods and suddenly has powers he can't control.
McCarrell is joined by Izzy Figueroa, Jorrel Javier, Ryan Knowles, Sam Leicht, Sarah Beth Pfeifer, James Hayden Rodriguez, Jalynn Steele, T. Shyvonne Stewart, and Kristin Stokes.
