GA Voice - - Out­spo­ken -

Lu­cas is an old col­lege friend of El­iz­a­beth, the main char­ac­ter. They were ac­tivist friends in their col­lege ex­pe­ri­ence. They had a ro­man­tic en­tan­gle­ment, back in the day. Noth­ing su­per se­ri­ous, but Lu­cas still holds some­thing of a can­dle for her. He is pretty se­ri­ous, very pas­sion­ate, com­mit­ted to the causes he is in­volved in. He is a bit of a neu­rotic guy. Funny, and cer­tainly a lot of fun to play.

Is this your first na­tional tour? ‘If/Then’

hon­ored jug­ger­naut, the way “Hamil­ton” has be­come. I knew I was part of some­thing I loved and was spe­cial. At the time the sub­ject mat­ter was not some­thing you would pre­dict would be a main­stream, smash hit.

How many per­for­mances have you done of it?

Over a thou­sand. I did it two years in New York, six in Lon­don and a year on tour.

Has be­ing out had any ef­fect on your pro­fes­sional ca­reer?

Hon­estly, it hasn’t. I have been pretty lucky. I don’t know for sure if it ever will have a neg­a­tive ef­fect. It doesn’t seem that way.

Tell us about your new movie “Do You Take This Man.”

An­thony Rapp and Jackie Burns star in ‘If/Then’ Aug. 9-14 at the Fox The­atre. (Cour­tesy photo by Joan Mar­cus)
