    ‘Sell/Buy/Date,’ Sarah Jones’s Futuristic Look at Sex Workers

    Charles Isherwood

    October 18, 2016: Given how the objectification and exploitation of women has become an ugly but central topic in the presidential campaign — I trust I don’t need to remind you of any details — “Sell/Buy/Date,” the newest show from the gifted writer and performer Sarah Jones, seems eerily timely. In this absorbing solo show, a Manhattan Theater Club production that opened on Tuesday at City Center, Ms. Jones peers into the future to explore how a sociology professor examines the lives of sex workers in the first decades of the 21st century. More broadly, the show also discusses how women of our era are conditioned to conceive of themselves — or how others conceive of them — as sexual beings.

    Soloist Sarah Jones maps the future of sex in Sell/Buy/Date

    David Cote

    October 18, 2016: Future-casting tends to focus on things like travel (flying cars!) politics (dystopia?) and discovery (aliens!), but let’s not forget sex. From the orgasmatron in Woody Allen’s Sleeper to the gender anarchy of Samuel R. Delany’s Dhalgren, sci-fi creators (and consumers) have wondered about where making love is headed. Now solo chameleon Sarah Jones weighs in with a gallery of high-definition characters who collectively paint a brave new world in which gender and orientation are totally fluid, while prostitution has gone through revolutionary social changes.
