interviewed four of the ladies behind Sex and the City
over the weekend about their new stage serial Cedar City Falls
, whose fourth episode runs tomorrow night at the Cell Theater
(at 7pm and 9:30pm) before moving to Galapagos Art Space
in Dumbo for the next four episodes every Tuesday in November. The soap-y comedy about the residents of a small Midwestern town marks Liz Tuccillo, Cindy Chupack, Elisa Zuritsky and Julie Rottenberg's first collaboration since the end of SATC
in 2005, and features a rather impressive cast
of TV and theater vets, as well as a strong set of guest stars
(just like a real TV show!).
The relatively bare-bones staging of the serial—for which all the actors are donating their time and the $18 admission is very affordable given the talent assembled—makes you wonder what the writers want to do with this series. Could this be a way of audience testing a new show, the beginnings of a years-long live soap, or just some friends trying out a new format for the fun and challenge of it?
