Candace Bushnell's solo show was scheduled to run through February 6.
Pour out a cosmopolitan. Is There Still Sex in the City?, the Off-Broadway solo show by Sex and the City creator Candace Bushnell, has ended its run at the Daryl Roth Theatre. The show, which was scheduled to run at the Daryl Roth Theatre through February 6, was forced to close early after Bushnell tested positive for Covid-19.
Bushnell is best known for her 1990s newspaper column about love and life in New York that would become the hit Sex and the City franchise starring Sarah Jessica Parker. In Is There Still Sex in the City?, she shared tales from her personal and romantic life, from the stories that inspired SATC and made her "the OG Carrie Bradshaw" to eventually divorcing and moving to Long Island with her girlfriends. She also shares how she got her start as a young writer and ended up a bestselling author.
Is There Still Sex in the City? premiered at the Bucks County Playhouse in Pennsylvania, before transferring off Broadway. The show began performances November 13 ahead of a December 7 opening night, and marked Bushnell's stage debut. Read our interview with Candace Bushnell about Is There Still Sex in the City?.
