In Broadway, Lucas Steele’s dazzling appearance and excellent vocal range make for a devastating combination. However, this Tony Award winner wants to keep things low-key and professional. The Pennsylvania native, who refers to himself as a “Modern Day Renaissance Man,” is a unique breed of actor who does things just for the love of his trade, rather than for popularity or notoriety.

IN NATASHA, PIERRE, AND THE GREAT COMET OF 1812, LUCAS STEELE AS ANATOLE
Lucas Steele performed Anatole in the off-Broadway production of ‘Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812’ from 2012 to 2015. This performance catapulted him into the spotlight on Broadway, garnering him a Lucille Lortel Award and a Tony Award nomination in 2017.
HOW DOES LUCAS STEELE CARE FOR HIS VOICE ON HIGH NOTES?
While he was playing the role of Anatole in ‘Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812’, Lucas was singing and hitting exceptionally high notes every night of the performance.
While audiences and fans praised his performance, Lucas said that he restricts his speech throughout the day or when he’s not performing to protect his voice. He claims that he limits how much he speaks during the day and prefers to text/chat rather than phone. He explained that this is crucial since they normally practice for around 5 hours a day, so he avoids overusing his voice. Perhaps this explains his soft-spoken demeanor during interviews. He utilizes a specific throat gargle as advised by his voice trainer, Dr. Bill Riley, in addition to restricting his speech. This is significant, according to Lucas, because theatres, where he spends the most of his time, are typically dusty, not to mention New York’s natural weather variations.
VOCAL RANGE OF LUCAS STEELE
Anatole in ‘Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812’ is regarded as one of Broadway’s most vocally difficult parts. According to a debate on Broadway World, Anatole necessitates ascending hundreds of steps every day (Lucas himself stated that they were averaging over 100 flights of stairs per day) while screaming out obscenely high notes.
Lucas Steele’s vocal range, according to Opera News, is the perfect combination of current musical theater and falsetto notes. This is clearly displayed in a video from Lucas’ YouTube channel from 2011, in which he is seen playing the piano and singing a mix of Jewel’s ‘Foolish Games’ and Lady Gaga’s ‘Bad Romance.’

LUCAS STEELE’S EARLY LIFE / HOW DID LUCAS STEELE BEGIN?
Lucas Steele began playing the piano by ear at the age of three, and by fifth grade, when he was eleven years old, he was already playing the violin. He explained that he began imitating vocalists like Freddy Mercury and Ella Fitzgerald since he had a keen ear, which explains his wide vocal range.
Lucas grew raised in the Pennsylvania town of Wyalusing (population 558). Wyalusing, according to Lucas, is a town reminiscent of ‘Friday Night Lights.’ As a result, he spent most Friday nights as a kid watching the local football game. On Friday evenings, episodes of PBS’ ‘Live From Lincoln Center’ aired, so Lucas would record them while watching his Friday night games.
When he got home after the game, he examined the performances. Due to its dark and mysterious premise, a presentation of American Playhouse Series’ ‘Into the Woods’ piqued his interest. He claimed that seeing it’sealed the deal’ for him and convinced him that this (theatre / production) was the path he wanted to take.
Lucas then made his Broadway debut in 2006 in a production of The Threepenny Opera, and he has now been in the theater for over 14 years.

SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS OF LUCAS STEELE: INSTAGRAM, FACEBOOK, TWITTER, YOUTUBE
Lucas Steele has accounts on all of the major social media platforms, including Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.
Lucas, on the other hand, plainly does not consider himself a star and maintains his social media presence clean and professional. Despite the fact that his most recent posts on any of his social media sites are from late 2018, he remains dedicated to his trade, demonstrating that not all actors are in it for the money. Many of them perform because they genuinely like what they do, and Lucas Steele is unquestionably one of them.
IS LUCAS STEELE A LESBIAN?
At the time of writing, Lucas Steele has made no public announcement or ‘coming out’ that he is gay.
He responded he likes the 1960s, the Hollywood glitter, and how everything are romanticized in that age when asked in a Broadwaycom interview which decade he would prefer to live in. He did note, however, that he did not like the lack of societal acceptability at the time. This might refer to racial as well as sexual (anti-gay) prejudice that existed at the time. However, this does not always imply that he is gay. He was then asked which character he would want to portray in ‘Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812,’ in which he plays Anatole, the lead male role. He stated that he would want to play Princess Mary in the film. ‘Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812’ is based on Leo Tolstoy’s 1869 novel ‘War and Peace’ and according to a fan forum discussion of ‘The Great Comet’, the book portrays Princess Mary as gay.
However, unless there is proof or an official comment from Lucas Steele himself, all of this is inconclusive, therefore we will continue to declare that we have no idea if Lucas is homosexual or not.
