The festival will select local and international productions to present from Oct. 20 to Nov. 20 at New York City's Theatre ROW.

For its first festival last fall, United Solo presented 47 productions from three continents, including shows directed by Austin Pendelton, Bill Bowers, and Jelena Stupljanin.
