“The most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself,” says Carrie Bradshaw. And now the iconic character’s creator and author of Sex and The City will dish on her own life a cabaret version of her acclaimed one-woman show. Candace Bushnell will play five special performances at New York City’s legendary Café Carlyle, May 10-14.
The original Carrie Bradshaw takes us on a whirlwind tour of New York City, from Studio 54 to Sex and The City to Lipstick Jungle and beyond, sharing her remarkable philosophy through stories of fashion, literature, and sex while pouring Cosmos in Manolos.
Her recent off-Broadway show, Is There Still Sex in the City, was described by the New York Times as “delightfully sprinkled with dishy details,” appealing to not just Sex and the City fans, but a whole new generation of fans who recently discovered the show.
Bushnell is the international best-selling author of ten books, including Is There Still Sex in the City, Sex and the City, Summer and the City, The Carrie Diaries, One Fifth Avenue, Lipstick Jungle, Trading Up, Killing Monica and Four Blondes.
In August of 2021, Sex and the City, published in 1996, celebrated its 25th anniversary. The book was the basis for the HBO hit series and two subsequent blockbuster movies. In addition, lipstick Jungle became a popular television series on NBC, as did The Carrie Diaries on the CW.
Bushnell’s work has influenced and defined more than two generations of women through her books and television series. She is the winner of the 2006 Matrix Award for books (other winners include Joan Didion and Amy Tan) and a recipient of the Albert Einstein Spirit of Achievement Award.
