Relationships and family dynamics are certainly non-traditional in the 21st century as proven in the musical drama Triple Threat.

The two-storied musical drama follows the paths of three friends as they develop a musical play into success while establishing a relationship with an unborn baby as a father, donor, and surrogate.

In this Broadway-inspired queer musical love story, Triple Threat stars Stacey Maltin and also makes her directorial debut with her co-star Margarita Zhitnikova as her producer. Also, it stars Jay DeYonker (also co-writer), Mark St. Cyr (High School Musical: The Musical—The Series), Yurel Echezarreta (Steven Speilberg’s West Side Story), Broadway’s Aramie Payton, and Catherine Curtin (Stranger Things).

Here is the official synopsis:

In Triple Threat, dreams of Broadway stardom meet the realities of adulthood as three long-time friends embark on an unexpected journey of what it means to birth the creation of your heart. Chloe (Maltin), Maggie (Zhitnikova), and Gus (DeYonker) must each make the choice between a Broadway musical and having a baby.

Fresh out of college, Chloe and Maggie put their all into creating their new original musical, “Firefly,” and ten years of hard work pay off when the show is picked up for a Broadway premiere. In their thirties, each one realizes that happiness might look a little different from what a younger self envisioned-from parenthood to partnerships to professional success.
