Carrie Fisher on Broadway and NY Times Best Seller List

ROUNDABOUT THEATRE COMPANY
Celebrates
Carrie Fisher
and her best-selling memoir
Wishful Drinking
as it hits #7 on the
New York Times
Paperback Nonfiction Best Sellers List
on October 18th.

Wishful Drinking opened to rave reviews on Broadway
in a limited engagement through January 3rd, 2010 at Studio 54  


Roundabout Theatre Company (Todd Haimes, Artistic Director), in association with Jonathan Reinis, Jamie Cesa, Eva Price & Berkeley Repertory Theatre, celebrate Carrie Fisher and her best-selling memoir Wishful Drinking (Simon & Schuster) which will hit #7 on the New York Times Paperback Nonfiction Best Sellers List on October 18th. 

The stage production Wishful Drinking, created and performed by Carrie Fisher and directed by Tony Taccone at Studio 54 on Broadway (254 West 54th St) opened to rave reviews on Broadway at Roundabout Theatre Company.  Wishful Drinking opened officially on Sunday, October 4th, 2009. This is a limited engagement through January 3rd, 2010.

The Simon & Schuster published book, which has received accolades from reviewers across the country, has 100,000 paperback copies in print after 3 printings.

In Wishful Drinking, Carrie Fisher recounts the true and intoxicating tale of her life as a Hollywood legend, told with the same wry wit she poured into bestsellers like Postcards from the Edge. The daughter of Eddie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, Carrie Fisher became a cultural icon when she starred as “Princess Leia” in the first Star Wars trilogy at 19 years old. Forever changed, Carrie’s life did not stay picture perfect.  Fisher is the life of the party in this uproarious and sobering look at her Hollywood hangover.
