Bucks County Playhouse recently announced that a new block of tickets is available for Candace Bushnell’s Is There Still Sex in the City? – a new live stage show from the critically acclaimed, international best-selling author and creator of Sex and the City.
On Tuesday and Thursday evening performances, at 7:30 p.m., the Playhouse will offer a special Girls Night VIP Package. This includes preferred seating; a post-show cocktail; meet and greet/photo opportunity with Bushnell; and a coupon for two Candace Cosmos with light snacks.
The Playhouse is presenting a workshop of the show, produced by Marc Johnston, for a month-long engagement. It’s currently playing in front of a limited live, socially distanced audience.
Is There Still Sex in the City?, written by and starring Bushnell, made its debut on June 22 and runs through July 18. This is the eighth world premiere at the Playhouse since 2012.
“Women of all generations can empathize with Candace,” said executive producer Robyn Goodman. “When my female friends and I read Candace’s columns and books we not only wanted to be her, but she freed us to talk honestly about sex and gave us the confidence to be ourselves and pursue our dreams.”
From her arrival in New York City alone with $20 in her pocket, to working her way up the ladder, to secrets behind the creation of Sex and the City and finding herself single again in her 50s, the always provocative Bushnell has a lot to say about sex, feminism, fashion, Cosmopolitans, Manolos, girlfriends, men and New York City.
“I’m so excited to share the story of how it all began, how a young woman reinvented her life and in the process created a cultural phenomenon,” said Bushnell. “Working with a company like Bucks County Playhouse and creating a show has been a dream of mine since I first arrived in New York, back in the late 70s. I’m thrilled to be working with such an amazing group of people.”
The production plays Tuesdays through Sundays. Tickets start at $45. The Girls Night VIP Package tickets are $125 on Tuesdays and $150 on Thursdays. Visit buckscountyplayhouse.org or call 215-862-2121 for more information.
