Carrie Fisher will bring her solo show Wishful Drinking back to Berkeley Repertory Theatre, July 9-23, prior to its Broadway premiere. Tony Taccone will direct.

In this autobiographically-based piece, Fisher recounts the true and intoxicating tale of her life as a Hollywood legend -- the daughter of Eddie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, who became a cultural icon when she starred as "Princess Leia" in the first Star Wars trilogy at 19 years old. The show previously played Berkeley Rep in February-March 2008. It will make its Broadway debut, presented by The Roundabout Theatre Company, at Studio 54, September 22-January 3.
