This Sunday, Oct. 4, sees the official Broadway opening of Wishful Drinking, the Tony Taccone-directed show that Berkeley Rep audiences saw during runs in 2008 and last summer. Carrie Fisher, the show's author and star, stopped by NBC's The Today Show to talk about her return to Broadway.

If you find yourself in New York, tickets for Wishful Drinking range from $31.50 to $111.50 and are available now from the Roundabout box office at 212 719-1300 or roundabouttheatre.org. The show is at Studio 54, 254 West 54th Street in Manhattan, between Broadway and Eighth Avenue. Fisher performs Tuesday through Saturday evenings at 8pm with Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday matinees at 2pm.
