SEX & THE CITY Stars Who Have Bowed on Broadway

The first two episodes of And Just Like That... are now streaming on HBO Max.

And Just Like That... New York City's favorite circle of friends is back on our screens! Sex and the City has returned for a new spin-off series, starring Sarah Jessica Parker as Carrie Bradshaw, Cynthia Nixon as Miranda Hobbs, and Kristin Davis as Charlotte York-Goldenblatt.

After six seasons of an HBO television series, two movies, and now a spinoff, we couldn't help but wonder... how many of the show's stars have been on Broadway? And, for a show set in New York City, how many Broadway stars have appeared in different incarnations of the hit franchise? Read on to find out!


Sarah Jessica Parker (Carrie Bradshaw)

Sarah Jessica Parker made her Broadway debut in 1976 as Flora in The Innocents. She later joined the original Broadway production of Annie as July before taking on the title-role. In the following years, she appeared in a handful of Off-Broadway shows, including The Heidi Chronicles and The Substance of Fire, before returning to Broadway as Rosemary Pilkington in the 1995 revival of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, alongside her husband, Matthew Broderick. Later that year, she starred in the title-role of Sylvia Off-Broadway. She then took on the role of Princess Winnifred in the 1996 Broadway revival of Once Upon a Mattress. Parker will return to Broadway in 2022, once again starring with Broderick, in a revival of Plaza Suite.
