Candace Bushnell, The Real-Life Carrie Bradshaw, Is Back With a New One-Woman Show


It’s been almost 25 years since author Candace Bushnell published a little book of columns titled Sex and the City, which would soon turn into one of the most beloved TV series of all time (and a few less-than-perfect movies, but we won’t dwell on those). While Sex and the City will soon be revived on HBO Max, Bushnell has been busying herself with theater; her new one-woman show, Is There Still Sex in the City?, runs through July 18 at the Bucks County Playhouse. 

Vogue recently spoke to Bushnell about her show, the Carrie-worthy real-life wardrobe she repurposes onstage, and her feelings about the upcoming Sex and the City reboot. Read the full interview below.

Vogue: First off, how did you get the idea for the one-woman show?


Candace Bushnell: Well, I first got the idea in 2018, when I was writing Is There Still Sex in the City? I sold the book to Paramount, but I realized that I wanted to keep the stage rights to my work, so I carved out a one-woman show from what was in that book.

What has it been like, re-examining that time in your life?

Well, it’s a show with a beginning, middle, and end, so that’s been interesting. I’ve learned some things about my life, and about how life works in general. It’s been a great, exciting experience. We had our second preview yesterday, and we got a standing ovation. I’ve been working on it for a while, and it’s something that I’ve never done before.


You’ve written a lot about your life, but does this feel like a departure in terms of sharing directly with an audience?

Yes, it’s definitely different. It’s a different form, so there are different requirements. Still, it’s not the first time I’ve gotten up on a stage—I’ve done a lot of lectures and book events since 1996— but the difference is that this is scripted, which makes it a little bit easier.

Is there anything you’ve learned about yourself in the process of putting this show together?


Gosh, what have I learned about myself? One of the things that I’ve learned is that I probably could have been an actress. (Laughs.) One of the things I’ve learned is that acting is a hell of a lot easier than writing a novel, really.
