Guys, this was a ridiculously cute and fun show. If you’re a fan of the source material and you have the capacity to see it play in NYC (for free!) in the summer go for it! Also:
1) Bianca cameo in the lotus hotel what up gurl.
2) Use of the phrase “saving grace” in a song about Thalia. They saw the opportunity and they took it haha.
3) Fantastic main trio. Percy was a cutie.
4) also Clarisse was a babe.
5) yay for supporting new musical writers and composers/theater for kids/literacy for kids! Way to go after all my biases.
6) also way to adapt this better than the movie. Yay!

sorry, but now i want to know everything about the musical!

jovaline:

Alright I just got a whole mess of askbox questions about this so here’s the deal.

Some talented folks at Theatreworks USA, an organization which develops and plays shows specifically for children and their families, got the rights to adapt The Lightning Thief into a musical. Tonight, they had a one-night engagement benefit concert (which was more like a staged reading with lighting, a couple props, and a band) which featured some songs from the musical. I inadvertently managed to find my way front, row center of all the action. It was a lot of fun! Genuinely funny. Genuinely catchy. (Though, keep in mind that it pretty much played straight into all my biases—that is, musicals and YA books. So, I probably was going to enjoy it no matter what haha.)

It was a really nice show, good songs (nice work Rob Rokicki), good adaptation (props to bookwriter Joe Tracz), good cast. It featured some known Broadway names like Terrence Mann (Chiron), Charlotte d’Amboise (Oracle), John Tartaglia (Medusa), Teal Wicks (Sally), and Constantine Maroulis (Aries). I also need to give props to the main trio, Eric Meyers (Percy, super good at playing street smart with the occasional endearingly dumb comment. Mixing up tartar sauce for Tartarus was gold.), Kristin Stokes (Annabeth), and Jordan Stanley (Grover) who played off each other really well. They straight up carried the weight of the show. Plus Sarah Beth Pfeifer (Clarisse) and Parker Drown (Luke) and the rest of the cast really killed it too! Stephen DeRosa’s Mr D was also hilarious.

I didn’t film it, and I don’t know if any of the show from tonight will make it onto YouTube, but there are a couple clips floating around of previous song performances. I know I saw one of the Capture the Flag number. Other standout moments: main trio song called “Killer Quest,” prologue song “The Day I Got Expelled” nailed it, and “The Tree on the Hill” was a nice song that flashbacked to Thalia’s death.

Anyway, it’ll be playing for free in NYC. Not sure of the exact dates, but I believe it’s sometime in July and August. So yeah! Go out and support children’s theatre, childhood literacy, and new musical theatre writers! Yeah!

I googled Sarah Beth Pfeifer so fast you have no idea.

Hera stole all of Percy’s memories except for Annabeth and Mean Girls quotes. 

(Nico is the only one who notices.)
