Ms. Fisher spills it…..all. During her Star Wars spiel, she’ll put a Princess Leia wig on someone in the audience and bellows: There! … How do YOU like it??!!” “What if I told you that George Lucas owns my image. George Lucas …owns…my…image!” “However, if George Lucas wants to hire you to do a movie in a dumpy white dress (with no bra underneath) , and donning a cinnamon bun wig…………DOOO IT!!!”
I’ll be attending this on Sunday night. My second time I’ve seen this. Last time, two years ago in NYC, not only did I get her autograph, but I got to speak briefly with her. I whispered in her ear and she answered in her wry wit. I can’t tell you what we said, it’s between she and me. (;^)
When I saw this in NYC the Venue was Studio 54. I couldn’t possibly imagine a better venue for Wishful Drinking.
If you’ve never seen this performance, I’ll give you a re-cap when I get back!
I wonder if she’ll throw in some more “Hollywood In-breeding 101”.
Lovingly ~~ D
PS: When a very young Carrie Fisher asks George Lucas why couldn’t she wear a bra underneath her dress. “There’s no underwear in space”. he deadpanned, not missing a beat.
