Upon entering the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, it was evident that there was a lot of excitement and anticipation for THE LIGHTNING THIEF THE PERCY JACKSON MUSICAL. It was also evident that the majority of attendees were young middle school aged girls who had apparently read all the books and couldn't wait to see what the musical had in store. It seemed that if a show was going to attract this audience, it may not be the best show. But, keeping an open mind helps. So, the expectations weren't too high as seats were taken and the lights dimmed.
However, as the actors took the stage, it certainly was not any mediocre show.
