“Extremely funny full-frontal confession. Carrie Fisher makes you feel like you’ve arrived for a slumber party to swap confidences. 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

Carrie Fisher, star of Roundabout Theatre Company’s Wishful Drinking, will be live in studio, Tuesday, October 13th on NBC’s “Today Show” between 10:00-11:00AM on channel 4.

Roundabout Theatre Company (Todd Haimes, Artistic Director), in association with Jonathan Reinis, Jamie Cesa, Eva Price & Berkeley Repertory Theatre, is proud to present the Broadway premiere production of Wishful Drinking, created and performed by Carrie Fisher and directed by Tony Taccone at Studio 54 on Broadway (254 West 54th St).  

Wishful Drinking opened officially on Sunday, October 4th, 2009. This is a limited engagement through January 3rd, 2010.

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.

Tickets are available by calling Roundabout Ticket Services at (212) 719-1300 and online at
Wishful Drinking plays Tuesday through Saturday evenings at 8:00PM with a Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday matinee at 2:00PM.  Prices range from $31.50-$111.50.
