United Solo Theatre Festival Returns with Double Force This Year
WHERE: Theatre Row, 410 W. 42nd Street, New York
United Solo, the world’s largest solo theatre festival, launches its new season at Theatre Row with a full slate of productions from across the globe.
The fall lineup represents a broad spectrum of themes and styles, including productions that undertake the subject of the COVID crisis, classical dramas, comedies, autobiographical shows, dance and music pieces, and multimedia productions.
In over a decade, United Solo has presented more than 1000 solo shows in the heart of New York City’s theatre district and was recently included in the New York Times’ fall theatre preview. “The show must go on with the audience. We’ve been waiting for this moment for too long,” said Omar Sangare, Artistic Director of United Solo. “This year we welcome our audiences returning to our theatre with an excitement that has proved to be mutual—as we added additional presentations of numerous sold-out shows in our response to popular demand.”
Theatre enthusiasts who will not be able to attend the Festival in New York may enjoy virtual offerings, which will be presented online. A new platform, United Solo Screen, will allow viewers from all around the world to engage with United Solo productions. Among the shows available for streaming are many of the Festival’s current productions, as well as shows by alums and emerging artists.
A complete listing of showtimes and dates, as well as further information, can be found on United Solo’s website www.unitedsolo.org—where audience members can purchase their tickets for in-person performances at Theatre Row, or subscribe to a virtual streaming of United Solo Screen.
