Broadway actor James T. Lane will star in his autobiographical solo show, Triple Threat, which is set to begin previews at Theatre Row on June 17 ahead of an opening night on June 23.

According to an official description, 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. Audiences will follow James as he escapes his traumatic adolescence in the South Philly Projects, and through sheer talent and tenacity, becomes a Broadway musical star. They will come along as the entertainer takes them through his unexpected next acts, spiraling from headliner to homeless and finally coming back to himself.”

Directed and choreographed by Kenny Ingram (Emojiland), Triple Threat features set design by Teresa L. Williams, sound design by DJ Potts, lighting design by Emmanuel Delgado and video design by T’ij D’oyen. Rachel Elder is the production stage manager. Brendan Gaul and Brett Henenberg are producing.

Lane was most recently on Broadway in Chicago. You can read TheaterMania’s review of his performance here.
