Percy Jackson fans: “The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical” officially opened at the Off-Broadway Lucille Lortel Theatre, 121 Christopher St., in Manhattan.

The show is based on the best-selling Disney-Hyperion “Lightning Thief” novel by Rick Riordan. Demigod Percy is on a mission to find Zeus’ lightning bolt and prevent a war between the Greek gods.

The musical was introduced to New York City by Theatreworks USA as a one-hour version with a smaller cast, and then toured the country. This new production has a new score, an updated, expanded script including a second act, a larger cast and a live band. The show will run through May 6.

Tickets are $65 to $85 and can be purchased by visiting LightningThiefMusical.com or calling 866-811-4111.
