In 2018, the Festival will once again offer top notch productions by renowned artists and emerging talents. Artists benefit from presenting their works in the world‑famous theatre district on 42nd Street. Theatre companies are given the opportunity to reach the industry, generate income from ticket sales from up to eight shows at the Festival, and receive media attention through previews, profiles, reviews, and other articles. Shows are also considered for awards in many categories. Winners from past seasons include Pedro Almodovar, Gordon Clapp, Sherry Glaser, Joe Gulla, Richard A. Harris, Milton Justice, Joan Kane, Ann Morrison, Bill Oberst, Estelle Parsons, Austin Pendleton, Mimi Quillin, LynnMarie Rink, Eric Roberts, and Addie Walsh. Many of the awarded artists will be invited to join the United Solo Academy, a creative group that helps the Festival nominate and select solo performers to receive the annual United Solo Special Award. Over the past few years, this honorary prize was presented to Anna Deavere Smith, Patti LuPone, John Leguizamo, Fiona Shaw, Billy Crystal, James Lecesne, Staceyann Chin, Cynthia Nixon, and Michael Moore.
