THE LIGHTNING THIEF -- THE PERCY JACKSON MUSICAL (in Chicago)

Saw it last night. Quirky, entertaining show with a bright score and very complicated storyline. Sort of a cross between the Harry Potter stories (minus Rowling's exquisite craft and attention to detail) and Dear Evan Hansen with a whole lot of Greek mythology thrown in and touches here and there of Be More Chill. I liked Chris McCarrell as Percy, a teen with a lot of angst who isn't shy about taking up the sword to improve his situation. I had a good time, but I'm also glad that I only paid $35 for my ticket.
