Rick Riordan's best-selling novel The Lightning Thief returns to the stage this spring with The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical, beginning performances March 23 at the Lucille Lortel Theatre. Chris McCarrell takes on the title role in the musical, written by Joe Tracz and Rob Rokicki and directed by Stephen Brackett. In anticipation of The Lightning Thief's off-Broadway debut, McCarrell went to the recording booth with a few songs from the show. Listen to his performance of the song "Good Kid," as well as some comments from the actor about his mythological character.

The Lightning Thief is described as follows: "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...The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical is an action-packed theatrical adventure that will rock your world."
