True Tales of Sex, Success and Sex and the City
In her new one-woman show, New York icon Candace Bushnell, the international best-selling novelist and creator of Sex and the City, takes us on a whirlwind tour of New York City. The original Carrie Bradshaw herself, Candace Bushnell has lived a full and fabulous life. Her story began with a 1990s New York Observer newspaper column about the lives of her and her friends - dating, parties, fashion, and the big city. Today that column has been adapted into a massively successful franchise (four books, a tv series, and two movies), and it all started with Bushnell.
In this dishy new performance piece, Bushnell walks the audience through her story: what was embellished for print, and even juicer, what was 100% true. Her stage debut (at 65!) garnered high praise from The New York Times, who noted that “Under the direction of Lorin Latarro, Bushnell is conversational and accessible onstage, [...] endearing rather than alienating to those looking on from the outside.”
The stage, dressed as a massive walk-in closet, lets Bushnell’s stories shine. She discusses the experience of being dumped by her Mr. Big just as she was publishing her first book, proving that there’s certainly more to life than dating. Indeed, at the core of her work, and her life, has always been her friends. “Maybe,” she writes, “our girlfriends are our soulmates, and guys are just people to have fun with.” From Studio 54 to Sex and the City to Lipstick Jungle and beyond, Bushnell shares her remarkable philosophy through stories of fashion, literature, and sex, all while pouring cosmos in Manolos.
