Is There Still Sex in the City? No, and Candace Bushnell Closes One Woman Show Thanks to COVID


Is there still Sex in the City?

The quick answer is No. Candace Bushnell, who wrote the New York Observer columns that formed the basis of the HBO hit, has COVID. She’s cancelled the rest of her run in a one woman show down at the Daryl Roth Theater.

Candace’s show, “Is There Still Sex in the City?” got positive reviews and good audiences before the ‘Cron came to town. But now it’s wrapped up for good like a lot of New York theater.

“Sex and the City” related projects and people are not faring well during this pandemic. The revived HBO show is a mess, people don’t like it, they killed off Chris Noth and then it turned out they really killed him off. Plus Willie Garson died while it was being filmed. And…they didn’t even bother using the trademark theme music.

And, of course, Kim Cattrall aka Samantha.

So all in all, not  good winter for “SATC.” Maybe it’s time for everyone to move on.
