THE HEBREW HILLBILLY: Fifty Shades of OY VEY

Relevant and slightly irreverent, Shelley Fisher’s critically acclaimed longest running solo musical play in the USA, THE HEBREW HILLBILLY, reminds us that we are more alike than different. Singer/songwriter, recording artist and performer, Fisher grew up Jewish in Memphis at the end of segregation and the start of rock n’ roll – with a father who escaped Russia at age 11 and a flamboyant outspoken mother who raised a beautiful proud Jewish family in the anti-Semitic racist Red Neck South.
Based upon her unique Dixie Fried background, Shelley created THE HEBREW HILLBILLY and collaborated with multi-platinum hit songwriters Ken Hirsch (Bette Midler, Air Supply, Barbra Streisand), Harold Payne (Rod Stewart, The Temptations, Bobby Womack) and Steve Rawlins (Lainie Kazan, John O’Hurley and The Emmys) to write 17 original songs for her hilarious and captivating production. Fisher unifies her packed audiences while making topics like racism, antisemitism discrimination and sexism somehow entertaining.
