BY Angeline Dimambro, December 8, 2021
Is There Still Sex in the City? is a new one-woman stage show from Candace Bushnell, the acclaimed, bestselling author of Sex and the City (1996), which was the basis for the HBO hit series of the same name and two subsequent blockbuster movies. Several Columbia University Theatre students and alumni are key crew members on Bushnell’s new show. They are Joel Glassman ’18 (Company Manager), alumna Nicole Kramer '20 (Associate Producer), student Robbie Armstrong (Assistant Stage Manager), and student Kyle Ronyecs (Production Assistant).
Is There Still Sex in the City? is a play in which Bushnell recounts personal stories of love, relationships, and plenty of other aspects of her life, including her New York Observer column that became the smash hit Sex and the City. Bushnell shares her remarkable philosophy through stories of fashion, literature, sex, and New York City while pouring cosmos in Manolos. The one-woman show first premiered in summer 2021 at Pennsylvania’s Bucks County Playhouse and made its New York Off-Broadway debut on December 7, 2021 at the Daryl Roth Theatre.
