United Solo™ is a theatre company based in New York City, dedicated to the genre of one-person performance. Our goal is to present solo pieces, both local and international; discover original scripts; bring creators together; exchange perspectives; and inspire creativity related to solo performance.

We present solo shows on variety of platforms, including physical and virtual stages, and we provide professional training for enthusiasts around the world. We believe that artists are capable of connecting with global audiences and focusing on the uniqueness of human beings. Through the exploration of existential themes, solo artists reflect upon political, economic, religious, and social experiences. In doing so, many inspire us to take action. The diversity of voices unites us in a constellation of unique solo expressions.
