THE HEBREW HILLBILLY® – Fifty Shades of Oy Vey!, written and performed by singer songwriter Shelley Fisher, is a musical one woman play which chronicles Ms. Fisher’s Hollywood odyssey that begins in the heart of the Mississippi Delta in her hometown of Memphis, Tennessee, birthplace of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Blues and Bar-b-cue. Growing up Jewish in the deep South with a flamboyant mother who frowned on her dating the local redneck boys, 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. The production is directed by Chris DeCarlo and produced by Debra Ehrhardt, with 15 songs written by Shelley Fisher, Ken Hirsch (musical director and keyboard accompanist), and Harold Payne.

~Bonnie Priever (

“The “Hebrew Hillbilly” is a unique and personal musical and dramatic experience of one womanʼs journey growing up as a Jewess in the South…Memphis Tennessee, to be exact. Shelley Fisher will have you laughing your kishkes off one moment as she describes her version of Jewish Southern Cuisine…”
