In downtown Philadelphia, a down-and-out boxer is struggling to get by when the chance of a lifetime comes along. He doesn't have long to get back in fighting shape, but if he does it, this could be his best shot to become a champion, and his last chance for love. The massively popular movie about the ultimate underdog inspired this innovative new stage production, brought to life by a five-time Tony Award-winning creative team, including director Alex Timbers (Peter and the Starcatcher), songwriting team Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Ragtime), and book writers Thomas Meehan (The Producers) and Sylvester Stallone, writer and star of the Rocky films. Featuring 20 original songs, plus hits from the films ("Eye of the Tiger" and "Gonna Fly Now"), Rocky is not only an adrenaline-fueled spectacle for anyone who was a fan of the movie, but it's also a surprising tale of romance that will touch the hearts of longtime musical theater fans.

Carrie is a humble, real comedienne and storyteller. Hearing about the funny and not-so-funny events of her life made her time in rehab and a mental institutional even understandable.
Her show will be a success. Plus, she is a pez dispenser!
Quotes & Highlights
- “(Fisher is) a Hollywood survivor and, as ever, a witty chronicler of its many pitfalls." -<em>-New York Times</em>
- "(A) Beverly Hills yard sale of juicy anecdotes.” --<em>Los Angeles Times</em>
- “Hilarious…the jokes cascade…a gold mine of very funny material." <em>--Variety</em>
Don’t miss Hollywood legend Carrie Fisher’s recounting of a true and intoxicating tale, told with the same wry wit she poured into bestsellers like Postcards from the Edge. Born to celebrity parents Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher, this Tinseltown toddler lands among the stars when she’s cast in a little movie called Star Wars.
But it isn’t all sweetness and light sabers: as a single mom, she also battles addiction, depression, mental institutions, and that awful hyperspace hairdo. Fisher’s tale is a tabloid vivant The Los Angeles Times calls a “Beverly Hills yard sale of juicy anecdotes.” Carrie Fisher’s Wishful Drinking is an uproarious look at a Hollywood hangover and a chance to get ‘Carried’ away!
