Why See The Lightning Thief?

MusicalsFamily Shows

Percy Jackson Live

Prepare to be swept away on an adventure into Greek Mythology as The Lightning Thief arrives at London's West End. Based on the best-selling book by Rick Riordan, which was adapted into a blockbuster movie in 2010, The Lightning Thief follows the story of Percy Jackson, a young boy with ADHD and dyslexia who discovers that he's the son of the Greek God Poseidon. When Zeus' lightning bolt is stolen, Percy is tasked with its recovery. A peppy musical loaded with mythological references, this show is great fun for all the family.

The Lightning Thief won a rapturous reception when it opened Off-Broadway in 2014, with The New York Post calling it "an action-packed musical with heroic battles and mythological beasties". Make sure you grab tickets to its UK premiere!
