About this show

Carrie Fisher's acclaimed solo show Wishful Drinking is directed by Tony Taccone. In Wishful Drinking, Fisher tells a true and intoxicating story with the strong, wry wit that she poured into bestsellers like Postcards from the Edge. Born to celebrity parents, she was picked to play a princess in the original Star Wars when only 19 years old. Alas, aside from a demanding career and her role as a single mother, Carrie spends her free time battling addiction, weathering the wild ride of manic depression, and lounging around various mental institutions. It's an incredible tale - from having Elizabeth Taylor as a stepmother to marrying (and divorcing) Paul Simon, from having the father of her daughter leave her for a man to ultimately waking up one morning and finding a friend dead beside her in bed. Entertainment Weekly declares Drinking "drolly hysterical," and the Los Angeles Times dubs it a "Beverly Hills yard sale of juicy anecdotes." Don't miss this outrageous chance to get Carried away.
