Award-winning wit, wag, and piquant observer of life’s mysterious ways, McCall sets her sites on the greatest mystery of all: death, and how to live with it. 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. Jon Lonoff directs. All United Solo™ shows are staged at Theatre Row, 410 West 42nd Street. See below for ticket information.
Tulis McCall is an actor/writer/producer and performer, and the recipient of the 2015 Best Storytelling Script Award from UNITED SOLO™ for her show All Aboard!, as well as the 2016 Best Standup Award for Are You Serious? – A Woman of a Certain Age Inquires. For almost 10 years she has hosted Monologues and Madness, an evening of original works read by 12-15 actors, held each month at the Cornelia Street Café in Greenwich Village.

Their goal is to present solo pieces, both local and international; discover original scripts; bring creators together; exchange perspectives; assemble performers, companies, and institutions, as well as other activities related to solo performance.
