In At Your Service, McCall sets her sites on the greatest mystery of all: life, death and our place in the line-up. When she suddenly sees a woman of a certain age staring back from her mirror, she demands to know how and when that broad got in there, and if she's leaving anytime soon. Before that happens, however, she has a few claims to stake and a few flags to raise. Sixty-nine year old Tulis McCall is an actor/writer/producer and performer. Her first one-person show, What Everywoman Knows, was produced at the Public Theatre in New York by Michael Moriarty, and at the West Coast Ensemble in Los Angeles by Dan Lauria. Her second, Running With Scissors - stories of contemporary urban lives - was directed by Philip Proctor of the Firesign Theatre. McCall is recipient of three UNITED SOLO™ Awards: 2015 Best Storytelling, 2016 Best Standup and 2017 Best One-Woman Show. McCall created and hosts Monologues and Madness, a monthly event of original works now in residence at PANGEA (after 10+ years at Cornelia Street Café), and she is the Editor of The Front Row Center, a New York theater review site.
Comments and reviews:
“Whenever Tulis McCall performs I make it a point to stop by and catch her show if I can. I primarily do this for the laughs and the uplift. Watching her top off her crowd work with original riffs and exquisite pacing and delivery, I receive a healing. I completely identify with her wisdom about sex, male machismo, the mirror, hating the ‘shocking’ physicality of aging, and the irresponsibility and obliviousness of youth concerning aging. Her humor about the terrifying impact of being referred to as a ‘woman of a certain age’ stings with truthful riot. There should be more Tulis McCall’s around.” Carol Di Tosti – Blog Critics
“This is the second time I’ve attended a show by monologist Tulis McCall. She’s no less angry, no less honest, no less acerbically funny. The artist admits to 68, but refuses to go gentle into that good night (Dylan Thomas). McCall faces herself in the mirror with a ‘volcano of regrets’ and observes aging with vitriol familiar to anyone in middle years or beyond. ‘You know you’re getting older when you look at a photo of your parents and think, dang, they were young!!’ - Alix Cohen, Woman Around Town
“Rounding the third turn on the track? Hoping to get there? In All in Good Time is gifted writer and performer Tulis McCall’s fearless and mordant take on the years ahead—and why we feel about them the way we do.” - Ashton Applewhite, Author of This Chair Rocks: A Manifesto Against Ageism
“A spectacular, witty, brilliant evening… Tulis speaks profoundly of aging but this is not just for women/people of a certain age. She will elicit big belly laughs and move you as well! Truly the best one woman show I’ve ever had the pleasure of seeing.” - Blythe Danner, Actress
“Original, funny, insightful and moving.” – Angelina Fiordellisi, Cherry Lane Theater
“Frank, funny, and refreshingly honest…feels both familiar and terrifying.” – Plays to See
“Tulis McCall is full of humor and wisdom and a master of the monologue.” - Martha Wade Steketee, Theater Pizzazz
