Debbie Reynolds Joins Daughter Carrie Fisher On Stage in WISHFUL DRINKING

Carrie Fisher was joined on stage by an unexpected guest during Tuesday evening's performance of Wishful Drinking - the star's mother, Debbie Reynolds.  Reynold's reported surprised fans by jumping on stage to perform a duet with Fisher.

Reynolds, whose own career and marriages are mocked in the piece, was "secretly" watching, making her presence known only when she took a place alongside her daughter on stage to sing a rendition of Happy Days in the show's finale.

Roundabout Theatre Company presents the Broadway premiere production of Wishful Drinking, created and performed by Carrie Fisher and directed by Tony Taccone at Studio 54 on Broadway. 

Carrie Fisher has received a 2010 Grammy Nomination in the Best Spoken Word Album category for her bestselling memoir Wishful Drinking.

Wishful Drinking opened officially on Sunday, October 4th, 2009. The limited engagement has been extended through January 17th, 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.

Tickets are available by calling Roundabout Ticket Services at (212) 719-1300 and online at www.roundabouttheatre.org.

Wishful Drinking plays Tuesday through Saturday evenings at 8:00PM with a Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday matinee at 2:00PM. Prices range from $36.50-$126.50.
