Actress Carrie Fisher was on ‘Charlie Rose' last night and to discuss her new one woman Broadway show Wishful Drinking, a Roundabout production.
"I'm proud of myself that I've been able to get through this stuff, and I've been able to -- I can't overcome it, but I can use it instead of it using -- I have problems. Problems don't have me. You know, I am a very -- I'm not afraid of anything. And that would that would not be so if I hadn't had to deal with all that. I started afraid, but I'm not afraid now," said Fisher.

Roundabout Theatre Company (Todd Haimes, Artistic Director), in association with Jonathan Reinis, Jamie Cesa, Eva Price & Berkeley Repertory Theatre, presents the Broadway premiere production of Wishful Drinking, created and performed by Carrie Fisher and directed by Tony Taccone at Studio 54 on Broadway. Wishful Drinking is a limited engagement through January 3rd, 2010.
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.
Wishful Drinking plays Tuesday through Saturday evenings at 8:00PM with a Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday matinee at 2:00PM. Ticket prices range from $31.50-$111.50 and are available by calling Roundabout Ticket Services at (212) 719-1300 and online at www.roundabouttheatre.org.
