Carrie Fisher's one-woman show Wishful Drinking gives a whirlwind tour of her very public life, from growing up a second-generation celebrity and winding up in Star Wars at age nineteen to battling addiction, bipolar disorder, and any number of mishaps including the father of her daughter leaving her for another man -- all told with a wry humor and candor familiar from her semi-autobiographical novels such as Postcards from the Edge and The Best Awful.After a world premiere run at the Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles in November 2006 with a different creative team, Fisher's been reworking the show with Berkeley Rep artistic director Tony Taccone, who also directed Danny Hoch's solo show next door on the Thrust Stage. February 8 through March 30 at Berkeley Repertory Theatre (2015 Addison St., Berkeley) or 510-647-2949.
