"Hilarious! Hugely entertaining! For Carrie Fisher, laughter is indeed the best medicine!" — The Boston Globe
Don't miss Hollywood legend Carrie Fisher's recounting of a true and intoxicating tale, told with the same wry wit she poured into bestsellers like Postcards from the Edge. Born to celebrity parents Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher, this Tinseltown toddler lands among the stars when she's cast in a little movie called Star Wars. But it isn't all sweetness and light sabers: as a single mom, she also battles addiction, depression, mental institutions, and that awful hyperspace hairdo. Fisher's tale is a tabloid vivant The Los Angeles Times calls a "Beverly Hills yard sale of juicy anecdotes." Carrie Fisher's Wishful Drinking is an uproarious look at a Hollywood hangover and a chance to get "Carried" away!
Artistic Director Peter DuBois is excited to present Carrie Fisher in her hilarious autobiographical one-woman show Wishful Drinking.
Carrie Fisher has been a compelling force in the film industry since her feature film debut opposite Warren Beatty in the 1975 hit Shampoo. The daughter of Eddie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, she became a cultural icon when she played Princess Leia in the original Star Wars trilogy.
