UNITED SOLO THEATRE FESTIVAL™ is an annual international festival for solo performances held for over a decade in New York City. The Festival scheduled for its inaugural season in London in 2022. Through a variety of one-person shows, the Festival explores and celebrates the uniqueness of the individual. Our audiences watch one-person performances from all over the world, experience foreign cultures and traditions, and learn the perspectives of people from all walks of life. Productions are selected from openly solicited submissions and presented at the highly acclaimed The Actors Centre in London’s West End and Theatre Row in the heart of the New York City theatre district on 42nd Street. Renowned solo performers, as well as new talents, bring their works in many categories (e.g. storytelling, puppetry, dance, multimedia, documentary, musical, improv, stand-up, poetry, magic, performance art, drama: tragedy or comedy). United Solo is a company of artists and producers with vast experience in solo performance. Artists whose work is presented at the Festival are given the opportunity to reach out to the industry, generate income from ticket sales from up to eight performances at the Festival, and receive media attention through previews, profiles, and reviews. Artists and their shows are also considered for special awards at the Festival.
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, Michael Moore, Renée Taylor, Aasif Mandvi, and Ian McKellen.
