The United Solo Festival returns to NYC’s Theatre Row Sept. 18–Nov. 23 and is currently seeking worldwide submissions for solo shows. So if you’ve got a one-person performance that incorporates improv, dance, musical theater, puppetry, multimedia, stand-up comedy, magic, or anything where you’re on a stage utterly alone, submit by March 3 to be considered for the festival.
Last year’s eight-week engagement had over 120 productions spanning six continents, and this year’s fifth anniversary includes an extended, 10-week run during which artists chosen for the festival have a shot at ticket sale profits, awards, and participation at the United Solo showcase in Europe. World premieres or previously performed shows are equally welcome, and previous winners include director Pedro Almodóvar and actor Gordon Clapp. For more information, visit www.unitedsolo.org.
