Carrie Fisher’s new solo show, which features Ms Fisher telling a comic and sobering tale about her Tinseltown hangover.  Born to celebrity parents, Ms Fisher lands among the stars when she’s picked to play a princess in a little movie called “Star Wars.” But it isn’t all sweetness and light sabers. As a single mom, she also battles addiction, depression, mental institutions, and that awful hyperspace hairdo.

For The Record:

 “Wishful Drinking” had its World Premiere at the Geffen Playhouse in Nov 2006.  It was later presented at the Berkeley Rep in Feb 2008 and was followed by a four-city tour.
