Lukas Poost Biography

Lukas Poost grew up in the small town of Wyalusing, Pennsylvania. Sparked by his star turn as Deputy Dan in his kindergarten production of Deputy Dan and the Scrambled Eggs Gang, he went through childhood with an ongoing and ever-growing romance with "living room show business." He and his five siblings put together countless plays, puppet shows, short films (written and improvised) and late night talk shows.

Lukas went on to study Acting and Musical Theatre at the Brind School at the University of the Arts in Philadephia. There he studied various acting and voice techniques including Meisner, Stanislavski, Williamson, Linklater, Skinner and more.

Not long after graduation Lukas dove headfirst into the professional world starring in the National Tour of Broadway's Shrek the Musical as the big green ogre himself, Shrek. The following summer, Shrek and Lukas went "ogre-seas" playing sold out runs in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and Shanghai, China!

Since Shrek, Lukas has played in and around the US including a brief stint Off-Broadway in the original cast of Unlock'd, a new musical by Carner and Gregor.

In addition to acting, Lukas enjoys the outdoors- hiking, camping, swimming, especially in the midcoast region of Maine.

Lukas currently lives in New York City.

BWW Review: DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS at Maltz Jupiter Theatre Photo BWW Review: DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS at Maltz Jupiter Theatre
by Richard Cameron - Apr 1, 2022

The Tony nominated musical hit DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS offers side slitting laughs to welcome back the iconic award winning theatre.

The melodic music and clever lyrics are a gift by David Yazbek. The hysterical book is by Jeffrey Lane. Dirty Rotten Scoundrels is based on the 1988 film of the same name.

by Michael Quintos - Feb 21, 2020

There are certainly plenty of movie-to-stage adaptations that have appeared (and continue to pop up) on Broadway, but few can boast being one of the most jubilant and unabashedly open-minded as the gloriously glam 2012 hit KINKY BOOTS, the Tony Award-winning stage musical adaptation of Geoff Deane and Tim Firth's 2005 independent cult film inspired by actual true events. The critical and audience favorite---which features memorable music from Grammy-winning pop icon Cyndi Lauper and a book by Tony winner Harvey Fierstein---enjoyed a healthy run on Broadway and in several national tours that followed, spreading its genuinely heartwarming yet cheekily-delivered message of acceptance and empathy. Now back in Southern California for its flashy, beautifully remounted West Coast regional premiere for 3-D Theatricals, KINKY BOOTS---now continuing performances through March 1, 2020 at the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts---is just as fun and fabulous as ever.
