The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical, adapted from the book series by Rick Riordan, is heading back on tour, although the restart will be later than previously announced.
Although a national tour had been slated to begin in the 2020/2021 season, the show’s booking company, Broadway and Beyond Theatricals, is now planning for the second national tour to begin sometime in 2022.
The delay may be due to the current health crisis and its effects on venues pushing back their 2020/2021 seasons to begin in early 2021.
The show’s previous tour covered 32 cities, including: Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston, Charlotte, and Tampa. For now, the new tour will continue to be presented by TheaterWorksUSA and Martian Entertainment. Casting, dates and cities are to be announced at a later date.
The Broadway production, which ran for 95 performances from October 2019 to January 2020, was recently granted eligibility status for the upcoming Tony Awards, which will be held digitally this fall.
Be sure to stay tuned for more news and information regarding the upcoming national tour.
