Percy Jackson has newly discovered powers he can’t control, monsters on his trail, and he is on a quest to find Zeus’s lightning bolt and prevent a war between the Greek gods. Normal is a myth when you’re a demigod.

Chris McCarrell, stars in a brand-new production of The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical this March at the Lucille Lortel Theatre (121 Christopher Street).

“I've always had an Off-Broadway heart, so this is such a homecoming for me. And to start it off at the Lortel is an actual dream. Can't wait to pour all I got into Percy Jackson. He's going to be quick, bold, and sharp. Young messy demigod finding his way? I'm in. Excited to work with the team to make this innovative, magical and heartfelt show our own.” Chris McCarrell
