You have to go see WISHFUL DRINKING, Oct 06, 2009
reviewer: Dorothynyc from New York City
WISHFUL DRINKING is one of the funniest shows to hit
Broadway in ages. Well, maybe not as far back (forward?)
as STAR WARS, but you get the idea. Carrie Fisher is
brilliant, both in her writing and her performance. In
addition to laughing until your teeth fall out, you'll learn
about the time Carrie was a shampoo bottle and a blow-up
doll, you'll find out about the complicated marital musical
chairs called Hollywood Couples and get some insight into
Tinseltown mother-daughter relationships, going back to
Debbie Reynolds and her mom, then Carrie and her
daughter. You'll also learn about her hot-cold marriage with
Paul Simon and the songs he wrote about her, and not while
he was still in love. In short, you will have a real blast and
can even see some blast-off footage from Star Wars. Go
buy your tickets RIGHT NOW.

Carrie Fisher's WISHFUL DRINKING, Oct 03, 2009
reviewer: Lynn from NewYork, NY
A qualification to end all qualifications - complete with audience participation, teaching tools, charts, dolls, etc. At times shocking and completely hilarious, Fisher's show gives one permission to laugh at life's most outrageous moments. And boy has she experienced them! Fun, fun, and more fun. I loved the show and would see it again.

She was meant for Broadway. Hilarious and touching., Oct 03, 2009
reviewer: Dcvdickens from New York
Went with friends to a preview and was blown away. She's a
great story teller - I thought as much having enjoyed her
books - but didn't know if it would translate to a one-woman
show, live, on a big Broadway stage. It does. You will be
totally enthralled. It is smartly directed, smoothly performed,
and amazing. The props are even funny! You cannot believe
how f-ed up a family can be until you listen to her stories. She
tells them with complete honesty and a great, infectious sense
of humor. Go and you will have a great, great time.

Trip over yourself to get to this show!, Oct 03, 2009
reviewer: Anonymous from Anytown, AT 55555
My friends and I laughed so much I thought we were going
to literally fall on the floor, except the seats are too close to
do that, so we just supported each other in our merriment.
This is one of the funniest shows I've ever seen (and I see a
LOT). Carrie has a way to revealing herself in surprising
ways that me you smile and chuckle and admire her
cleverness, all at the same time. We went with a group of
people, ages 23-80 and everyone had a blast. I thought the
younger ones might not enjoy it as much, but they did! They
talked about it for days. The audience was laughing so much
that I went back a second night in order to catch some of the
lines I missed. It was so overwhelmingly entertaining that
I'll go back a third time. DON'T MISS THIS AWESOME
PERFORMANCE by the former Princess Leia and Pez
Dispenser (You'll learn about all that at the show).
