Wishful Drinking at the Royal Alexandra Theatre in Toronto, ON, Ended 21 Aug 2011.
The daughter of Eddie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, Carrie Fisher became a cultural icon in her own right at the age of 19, when she starred as 'Princess Leia' in the Star Wars trilogy. In WISHFUL DRINKING, she tells the true and intoxicating tale of her life as a Hollywood legend - with all the wry wit she poured into such bestsellers as Postcards from the Edge - in an uproarious and sobering look at her "Hollywood hangover".
Wishful Drining premiered in 2006, in Los Angeles, and has since completed sell-out runs in theatres across the U.S., culminating in a wildly successful engagement at Broadway's Studio 54 in 2010, winning the prestigious 2010 Outer Critics' Circle Award. The show received rave reviews on Broadway. In The New York Times, critic Ben Brantley described it as, "An extremely funny full-frontal confession. You're going to like it. A LOT." Michael Kuchwara, of the Associated Press, called it, "A hilarious journey through a world of celebrity, chock-full of funny, fascinating talents." And TimeOut New York declared Wishful Drinking to be, "Dirty, delightful and hilarious!"
Audience: Wishful Drinking may not be appropriate for children aged under 12. Children under 4 years of age will not be admitted.
Run time: 2 hours with one 15 minute intermission
