"Shelly put on one magnificent one-woman show..."


The show could be appreciated by anyone

★★★★★
5 5 1
I’m a fan of country music and blues and was impressed by seeing the artist on PBS. I’m not Jewish, but looked her up online and sent a YouTube link on her to my Jewish friends. I took three guests with me, not the original three Jewish friends I had already bought tickets for. Not only are they Goyem, my friends don’t necessarily share my taste in music. The show could be appreciated by anyone, and my friends thought it was excellent. One of the messages of her story is especially timely, that is the value of diversity. Her backstory is also like a who’s who of the Rock era.

Both of us were wowed by Shelley Fisher's Hebrew Hillbilly show. We didn't know what to expect and decided at the last minute to go since we had heard about the show for 2 years. To our surprise It was intensely powerful hearing her life story and we were incredibly entertained! Shelley is an amazing singer and we loved every number that she sang. She is engaging and a true performer. I highly recommend seeing this show before it closes.

pleasantly surprised

Not what I was expecting, but pleasantly surprised. Has nothing to do with a hillbilly other than the fact the performer is from Mississippi. Its more about a Jewish girl growing up in the south and telling her life story of how she became a performer.

amazing

The evening was sensational and the energy of her performance was amazing. Shelly Fishers has turned a life of lemons into lemonade. She gave the audience a view of growing up in Memphis as a little Jewish girl who has over come such great obstacles and still shines with a sparkle. As she sang her final song I could not help but feel is mother Fredia looking down on her proudly. The original songs were so beautifully written and the dialog so moving. I recommend this one woman show as an evening of good entertainment.

Shelley Fisher, born Jewish in the South, the Hebrew hillbilly, is dynamite! Great voice, funny, and has some terrific stories to tell. She's backed by award-winning songwriter Ken Hirsch, who underscores her stories and songs brilliantly. I'd say don't miss it.

I found this show to be deeply moving--and very funny. I was pulled right into the story of Shelley's life and I stayed with her until the end. I was touched by her ability to reach an emotional depth and still bring in a lot of humor.

I saw this show for the second time and thought it was amazing. The team of Shelley Fisher and Ken Hirsch(keyboard) took the audience on a musical and emotional journey that kept me riveted and entertained for the entire 90 minutes. I recommend The Hebrew Hillbilly to anyone who has a heart and loves authentic storytelling and music with southern charm and soul.

Undoubtedly, one of the most entertaining evenings in theatre. Shelley Fisher is a major talent, not to be missed. Her original songs along with composer/musicians Kenny Hirsch and Harold Payne are still playing in my head. I'm going back with friends to the next performance. Definitely don't miss this one!

wonderful evening

It was a wonderful evening of songs and storytelling. Shelly and her ensemble created the musical magic carpet ride that took us on Shelly's poignant and hilarious life experiences. My wife and I laughed and clapped with the audience at these amazing musical compositions. We were truly impress at the professionalism of this production.

I loved it!

Shelley Fisher makes the stage her own with a commanding and sometimes wistful presence. Her compelling and frankly told life's journey is often hilarious often poignant and always engrossing. Shelley's breathless high energy and southern-flavored delivery are riveting. Her presentation is one of a kind and not to be missed! I was literally at the edge of my seat for the entire 90 riveting minutes. This was my fourth time enjoying the Hebrew Hillbilly and once again Shelley received a well deserved a standing O. Shelley belts out a variety of her original songs in a powerful, nuanced voice, backed by two outstanding musicians, and inhabits the persons comic and forlorn from her adventures. Ms. Fisher switches seamlessly from funny to touching before your eyes with intriguing results. FYI, you don't have to be Jewish -- or Hillbilly -- to enjoy this amazing performance.

show for the ages

The Hebrew Hillbilly is a show for the ages an all ages. It is everyone's life story of ups and downs, set backs and successes, and most importantly, never giving up on yourself and your dreams. Shelley Fisher is brilliant. How can one person...
