Roundabout’s WISHFUL DRINKING concludes limited engagement 01/17

Final Week!





Created and performed by



Directed by Tony Taccone


concludes its limited engagement Sunday, January 17th, 2010


“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



On Broadway at Studio 54


Roundabout Theatre Company’s (Todd Haimes, Artistic Director) limited engagement of Wishful Drinking will play its final performance on Sunday, January 17that 2:00 PM. Wishful Drinking is created and performed by Carrie Fisher and directed by Tony Taccone.


Wishful Drinking will have played 15 preview performances and 133 regular performances.  Previews began on September 22nd, 2009 and opened officially on October 4th, 2009 at Studio 54 on Broadway (254 West 54th St). 


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.



Tickets are available by calling Roundabout Ticket Services at (212) 719-1300 and online at www.roundabouttheatre.org.


Wishful Drinking plays Wednesday through Saturday evenings at 8:00PM with a Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday matinee at 2:00PM.
