Sex and the City LIVE! Debuts at Oasis

Hot after the successful run of The Facts of Life LIVE, and 11 years after the original series went off the air, a quartet of drag queens is resurrecting Sex and the City. Sue Casa (Carrie), D’Arcy Drollinger (Samantha), Lady Bear (Miranda) and Hannukah Lewinsky (Charlotte) are taking the show to Oasis, size-13 Manolos and all.

[jump] Over the last three years, previous versions of Sex and the City LIVE! have sold out, and for this iteration, San Francisco’s drag royalty are bringing out two entirely new episodes,

Oasis is militantly against bottle service and other forms of charging patrons and arm and a leg to see a show. But since the venue is a proper cabaret, there is premium seating, including a $200 “Cosmopolitan Table” way up front, where you can really see some leg, and a “Samantha Champagne” Table that includes a meet-and-greet with the cast. For regular folks who just want to laugh their asses off, single tickets are a mere $25-$30.

When Carrie Bradshaw mused, “What are we going to do? Sit around bars, sipping cosmos and sleeping with strangers when we’re 80?” she wasn’t being flip. Sex and the City LIVE! is a way of life. Even Darren Star, the actual show’s creator, admitted that it was “funnier than it was on TV.” It’s definitely funnier than the second SITC film, the one with the sheikh who pays for everything until Samantha gets arrested to smooching at the beach. We swear on Chanel!

Sex and the City LIVE!, Thursdays – Saturdays, June 4 – July 3, 7 p.m., at Oasis, 298 11th St.
