The Gospel According to Leia

For several years now, Southern straight women and gay men have identified with Dolly Parton's famous line from the film version of STEEL MAGNOLIAS:

'Laughter through tears is my favorite emotion."

I am happy to report that my idol, soon-to-be best friend and future double-date partner Carrie Fisher (She knows nothing of my plans to secure all her attention. Say nothing. Act casual.) has updated this thought for the new century.

She says that her one-woman show, WISHFUL DRINKING, now playing at the Geffen Playhouse is filled with funny stories that are all framed by one central idea:

“If my life wasn’t funny, it would just be true, and that’s unacceptable.”
