“Extremely funny full-frontal confession. You’re going to like it. A Lot.” 
-Ben Brantley, The New York Times

"Winning and Hilarious! Carrie Fisher is witty, likable, acerbic, clever and wryly forthcoming about the warped reality of life in the celebrity bubble.”
-David Rooney, Variety

“Broadway's new Queen of Comedy!” - Pat Collins, WWOR TV

on Broadway at Studio 54

Roundabout Theatre Company (Todd Haimes, Artistic Director), in association with Jonathan Reinis, Jamie Cesa, Eva Price & Berkeley Repertory Theatre, is pleased to announce a two-week extension of Wishful Drinking, created and performed by Carrie Fisher.   Directed by Tony Taccone, the Broadway premiere production will extend through January 17th, 2010.

Wishful Drinking opened officially on Sunday, October 4th, 2009 at Studio 54 on Broadway (254 West 54th St).  This limited engagement has been extended through January 17th, 2010.

Alexander V. Nichols provides the scenic, lighting and projection design.

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.
