Traditionally a Triple Threat is described as one who can sing, act, and dance. The term threat, as I’ve come to understand it, describes the threat of this individual getting cast over you because of their ability to do and be it all. These are the people they tell you to watch out for. These are the people they say you don’t want to go toe to toe with. But is that it? Black, Gay, and Disabled? Immigrant, Son, Poor? Educated, Tired, Angry? Do you feel threatened? You should.
