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.

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.

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