Hollywood's brightest stars descended on the Geffen Playhouse in Westwood, Calif. Wednesday, November 15 to celebrate the World Premiere of Carrie Fisher's one-woman show, Wishful Drinking, with opening night sponsored by Audi.

"Fisher narrates the episodes of her chaotic life with brutal honesty and banter: from her unusual childhood as the daughter of Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher to her involvement with a little movie called Star Wars, from her marriage to Paul Simon to the successes of her novels and screenplays, from her struggles with substance abuse and mental illness to the bliss of being a mother…to a teenager," state Geffen notes.

Wishful Drinking plays through December 23, 2006 at the Geffen Playhouse. Tickets can be purchased online at, at 310-208-5454 and through Ticketmaster. The Geffen Playhouse is located at 10886 Le Conte Avenue, Westwood, CA 90024 (across from the UCLA campus).
