Adapted from Rick Riordan’s bestselling YA book, this “electrifying” (Newsday) pop-rock musical finds Percy Jackson in hot water at school — again. But he’s got bigger fish to fry. Lately, mythological monsters and the gods of Mount Olympus seem to be walking straight out of the pages of Percy’s Greek mythology textbook and into his life, and he seems to have angered a few of them along the way. Now, young Percy and his newfound friends must race against the hourglass to solve the mystery of Zeus’ stolen lightning bolt and set things right on Mount Olympus. Nominated for three Drama Desk Awards including Best Musical, The Lightning Thief comes to the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts in Saint Paul in a production deemed “worthy of the gods” by TimeOut New York.
