Lucas Steele joins the cast of a musical based on the book by sex columnist Dan Savage.

Additional casting has been announced for The New Group's upcoming off-Broadway musical adaptation of Dan Savage's The Kid. The new tuner, starring the previously announced Christopher Sieber, begins performances April 10 at the Acorn Theatre on Theatre Row. Directed by artistic director Scott Elliott, the show opens May 6.

Joining Sieber, who stars as Dan, are Jill Eikenberry (TV's L.A. Law, Watch on the Rhine, off-Broadway's Enter Laughing) as Dan's mother, newcomer Jeannine Frumess as Melissa, Lucas Steele (The Threepenny Opera) as Dan's boyfriend and Michael Wartella (off-Broadway's Seussical) as Bacchus, as well as Side by Side by Susan Blackwell host Susan Blackwell (Broadway's [title of show]), Ann Harada (Broadway's Avenue Q) and Brooke Sunny Moriber (The Wild Party) as featured ensemble players.

The tuner is based on sex advice columnist Savage’s 2000 book The Kid: What Happened After My Boyfriend and I Decided to Go Get Pregnant, which chronicles the author’s real life efforts to adopt a child with his boyfriend.

The Kid, featuring a book bt Michael Zam, music by Andy Monroe and lyrics by Jack Lechner, marks The New Group's return to musical theater after producing the Tony Award-winning hit Avenue Q in 2004.
