In a special benefit event to support Santa Monica Playhouse, "Shelley Fisher rips the roof off with her bluesy, ballsy, autobiographical one-woman show – while ripping at the heart strings of her packed houses. Fisher's story of a good little southern Jewish girl with big rock and roll dreams gets fueled by fourteen show-stopping numbers co written with renowned hit makers, Kenny Hirsch (I've Never Been To Me, No One In The World) and Harold Payne (Bobby Womack, Snoop Dogg). The music packs an authentic Memphis punch blending rock with blues, and a lot of soul. Known as "The Memphis Belle of L.A.," anyone who has ever met Fisher, sweet as she is spicy, knows of her genuine, down home personality that puts you immediately at ease - and this warmth lies at the beating heart of The Hebrew Hillbilly." Xaque Gruber, The Huffington Post. One night only, to support the Santa Monica Playhouse Benefit Series.
The Playhouse, now celebrating 58 years of continuous theatrical and educational services to the community, is supported in part by grants from the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors through the Los Angeles County Arts Commission, the City of Santa Monica and the Santa Monica Arts Commission and US Bank.
