Fresh off starring in the role of Billy Flynn in Broadway’s Chicago, theatre veteran James T. Lane‘s solo autobiographical show, Triple Threat, will make its Off-Broadway debut at THEATRE ROW (410 W. 42nd Street, NYC NY). Pride month previews begin on June 17th in advance of opening on June 23rd, 2023.
Written and performed by Lane, Triple Threat recounts the actor’s moving, redemptive journey – from his against-all-odds entertainment rise to near-death cataclysmic fall, and his extraordinary return to the top. Acting, singing, and dancing his way through pivotal scenes from his life, Lane reveals that he is, indeed, a triple threat, just not always the kind he or anyone else ever envisions.
This marks the New York debut of Triple Threat. Lane originally conceived of the show following a commission by The Young Vic for an original work in 2015. The actor, who was performing in The Scottsboro Boys in London’s West End at the time, crafted the project under the guidance of storied Artistic Director, David Lan, and producer Ben Cooper. Six years later, Lane’s deeply personal solo show made its world premiere at The Zeiders American Dream Theatre.
