"My Rebellion Wasn’t Drugs, It Was Not Doing Night-Club Work"

Carrie Fisher's one-woman show, "Wishful Drinking," began previews last night on Broadway.

It's being produced by the Roundabout Theatre.

At Studio 54.

Carrie Fisher. Talking about her life. At Studio 54.

Can it possibly get any better than that?

No.

Paul Simon once took Ms. Fisher to Studio 54 on a date. When it was a disco. No, when it was THE disco.

In The New Yorker, Carrie had this to say about playing Studio 54...

“I’m only going to play theatres
where I’ve been really high.”


Dear God, how I adore this woman!

I still need to read this book and I would love to see the show! My friends in Seattle went twice because it was so good!
