New Yorker Kerry Ipema teams up with Fringe baron TJ Dawe to resurrect in a New York hour the seminal HBO dramedy of the late 90s.

The audience is also treated to sharp satire and sassy asides in this breakneck riff through all six seasons.- Lara Rae

It's hard to believe the show debuted nearly 20 years ago, so cloyingly familiar are Carrie, Charlotte, Samantha and Miranda. Ipema renders them well, along with the myriad of insipid men who court them. 

The audience is also treated to sharp satire and sassy asides in this breakneck riff through all six seasons. 

"It was a show about the Golden Girls when they were young," is a line that puts the whole Sex and the City phenomenon in its proper setting. 

The set is spare — there isn't one. The whole enterprise is created by one woman's voice and gestures. Sex and the City was always a guilty pleasure but this funny show can be savoured with head held high.
