Carrie Fisher's Wishful Drinking heads from Seattle to Broadway

Seattle, WA - On the heels of Wishful Drinking's Seattle extension—the play has been extended through May 9 at Seattle Rep—producers of Carrie Fisher's autobiographical comedy just announced the show will make its Broadway premiere at Roundabout Theatre Company in September.

Wishful Drinking marks the strongest sales Seattle Rep has seen since Lily Tomlin brought her one-woman show, The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe, to the theatre in 2000.

Following that premiere, the show has completed successful runs at a number of not-for-profit theatre organizations around the country includingBerkeley Repertory Theatre (February 2008), Arena Stage (September 2008), Huntington Theatre Company (October 2008) and Seattle Repertory Theatre.

Tickets are on sale now for the few remaining performances of the Seattle run of Wishful Drinking.Tickets are available through the Seattle Repertory Theatre box office seven days a week at (206) 443-2222, toll-free at (877) 900-9285, as well as online at
