In honor of the Lightning Thief Musical, I did a drawing of Chris McCarrell who’s playing Percy!! This drawing took unbelievably long and is 1,429 layers, so please like and reblog if you like it!! Also please don’t repost you guys!
OKAY TIME TO REMINANCE ABOUT THIS SHOW.
Okay so I remember when the show began, there was no Overture. You heard a loud crash and the actors stepped out an immediately began singing the Prologue. It was super powerful and beautiful. I could go and on. It perfectly captured the feeling of the books. It’s was campy in all of the right places and it was filled with tons of book references and as you can see in the picture, The set was very close to the New York setting with graffiti and scaffolding (Which is completely accurate to NYC, as a citizen of the city I can confirm) The songs were incredible and George Salazar was amazing, I feel so lucky to have been able to see him preform. Lost! is honestly my favorite song, it’s perfect and now I’m just rambling now. But now that the soundtrack is out(I’ve been waiting for the soundtrack since way before I saw the show, like since before March. I saw the show on March 31st) I really hope that the show gathers the following it deverses.
My friend just reminded me that a couple months ago we saw Chris McCarrell (who’s playing Percy Jackson in the musical) in a concert in NYC and then afterwards watched him crash a rolling chair into a parked car and I’m laughing so hard rn
