The Hebrew Hillbilly The Santa Monica Playhouse 1211 4th Street Santa Monica, CA 90401
The Hebrew Hillbilly is a critically acclaimed solo musical play written and performed by singer songwriter Shelley Fisher. Fisher's Hollywood odyssey begins in the heart of the Mississippi Delta in her hometown of Memphis, Tennessee and chronicles her love affair with Blues, Rock 'n' Roll, and Elvis.
Growing up Jewish in the deep South with a flamboyant mother, the Hebrew Hillbilly begins singing as a little girl and never stops. From her early years as a blonde bombshell, through her current incarnation as The Memphis Belle of L.A., Ms Fisher has been on a show business rollercoaster that slows down just long enough for her audience to climb on board this deeply personal, yet universally appealing and hilarious ride. Featuring 14 original songs written by Shelley Fisher, Kenneth Hirsch, and Harold Payne, the show is a celebration of diversity, dreams, and determination!
Your Brown Paper Ticket purchase includes a complimentary copy of Fisher's CD: Rockin' In Memphis and VIP Reserved seating.
"Memphis-native singer/songwriter, Shelley Fisher, rips the roof off the Santa Monica Playhouse with her bluesy, ballsy, autobiographical one-woman show, The Hebrew Hillbilly - while ripping at the heartstrings of her packed houses."
Xaque Gruber (Huffington Post)
"Thanks to this talented lady from Memphis, TN - who is a dash of Mae West, and a pinch of Dolly Parton - the stage vibrates with her songs, anecdotes...and charm."
