2010 Fest BEGINS!

One actor and one performance – this is a basic rule of the new 2010 United Solo Theatre Festival, already the Largest Solo Festival in the world. The inaugural edition of the festival will take place at the highly acclaimed Theatre ROW in the heart of the New York City theatre district on 42nd Street.

47 artists will present their productions in a fifty-five seat “Black Box” theatre ideal for solo performances. All shows will be presented between November 8 and 21, and artists will compete for a collection of various awards, including: the best in acting award, best performance, best script, and audience award.


There are 20 one-man and 27 one-woman shows. 32 of the artists live in New York, but many of these have origins in Latin America, Asia, Europe and Africa. 9 come from various states: California, DC, Illinois, New Jersey, New York and Vermont. 4 of them permanently live abroad and will come especially for the Festival.


United Solo’s online presence is an important part of the project. The website www.unitedsolo.org provides up-to-date news, shows profiles and useful information. The news updates can be found on Twitter and Facebook. This social network is also used to publish recommended solo shows, funny movies found on the web and will be a place to present artistsʼ profiles and clips.


Tickets are available at the Theatre ROW Box Office at 410 W 42nd St. NYC and online through Telecharge. You may also call 212-239-6200. Find our full schedule here.
