WATCH NOW!

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 Rory Mitchell and produced by Debra Ehrhardt, with 15 songs written by Shelley Fisher, Ken Hirsch (musical director and keyboard accompanist), and Harold Payne.

THE PERFORMERS

Singer & Performer

Born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee, Shelley was born with a slightly tarnished silver fork in her mouth. Through her house wafted the sweet honey suckled aromas of her Mama’s down home cookin’. Much of her life’s work has been dedicated to recreating the authentic corn bread of her youth. She has triumphed with her signature dish, Horny Cornbread StudMuffins®.

Musical Director

Ken Hirsch is an award winning, internationally known songwriter.  As a youngster he studied at The Juilliard School of Music and graduated from Queens College, NY with a major in music.  He was Bette Midler’s original musical director and accompanist for her first three appearances on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson which launched her career.

Songwriter

Harold Payne is a multi-platinum songwriter whose soulful uplifting songs and husky heartfelt vocals combined with his uncanny gift for spontaneity have graced stages around the world. He has written songs for such diverse artists as Rod Stewart, Patti Labelle, the Temptations & Kelly Rowland—literally from Peter Paul and Mary to Snoop Dogg.

Producer

Debra Ehrhardt produced her first award-winning play, Mango Mango, and Invisible Chairs, which was later produced by David Strasberg at the Marilyn Monroe theatre in West Hollywood and later optioned as a situation comedy by Fox.

WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING

“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)

“Fisher has a spectacular voice, worthy of a cabaret performance, along with a charming country drawl. She is the epitome of down home charm meets urban sophisticate.”

~Bonnie Priever (Examiner.com)

“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…”

~Cantor Linda Rich

“She is a radiant performer who, by her warm presentation, gives her audience a feeling that they know her and can empathize with her.”

~Carol Kaufman Segal (ReviewPlays.com)

“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 Yiddish charm.”

~Pam Price (SanDiegoTheatreReviews.com)

“I attended your performance in Santa Monica on Sunday. A tour de force! I was very impressed with your powerful voice, your expressive songs and your charismatic presence on stage.”

~Cantor Doug Cotler
