EXCLUSIVE: In the Recording Booth With The Lightning Thief
Watch Kristin Stokes record the song "My Grand Plan" for the divine cast album.
The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical, based on the best-selling Disney-Hyperion novel by Rick Riordan, released its cast album on July 7 with Broadway Records.
Written by Joe Tracz (Netflix's Series of Unfortunate Events) and Rob Rokicki (Strange Tails), The Lightning Thief ran at the Lucille Lortel Theatre this past season, earning a Drama Desk nomination for Outstanding Musical.
The cast featured on the recording includes Chris McCarrell as Percy Jackson, Carrie Compere as Sally, Sarah Beth Pfeifer as Clarisse, Jonathan Raviv as Brunner, James Hayden Rodriguez as Luke, George Salazar as Grover, and Kristin Stokes as Annabeth.
To celebrate the album's release, we're offering an exclusive look behind the scenes at the making of the track "My Grand Plan," performed by Kristin Stokes. Her character, Annabeth, is a whip-smart demigod and daughter of Athena, so if you were looking to infuse your girl power with some divinity (or vice versa), this is the showtune for you.
