Movie Star Wars

She’ll never be allowed to live down that oddball wig she wore in her most famous film role, but Carrie Fisher has so much more to offer than Princess Leia and her Star Wars cinnamon-bun ’do, and she’ll prove it with the new Spy in the House of Me. Fisher has tweaked the subgenre of one-woman shows with explicit and no-names-spared dish on her illustrious showbiz life as movie star, best-selling author, and former addict whose parents are Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher and whose list of past lovers reads like a page torn from Who’s Who. A crumpled, sweat-stained page, that is. The show, originally titled Wishful Drinking, continues daily through May 4 at Theater 4301.
April 29-May 1, 7:30 p.m.; May 2-3, 8 p.m.; May 3-4, 2 p.m., 2008
