I went expecting a fantastic evening based on the wonderful reviews. Since the audience was specifically asked to only write favorable reviews I see now why the program was such a disappointment...the reviews were skewed. Shelley seemed awkward on...continued

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...continued

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...continued

Bravo! A masterpiece. Not to be missed. A star is born! It's everyone's story brilliantly delivered in words and beautiful music by Shelley Fisher. Where does she get the stamina to do it alone for 90 minutes? Brilliant musical accompaniment by...continued

The evening couldn't have been more entertaining and enjoyable. Shelley Fisher sings like an angel and her story is most captivating. It has just the right balance of comedy, joy, sadness and uplifting music to merit Five Stars. The original...continued

The Hebrew Hillbilly is the best solo show I've ever seen, and I'm a regular theatre goer. It's hard to believe that one gal Shelley Fisher could break our hearts in one moment and have us LAUGHING HYSTERICALLY THE NEXT. Her amazing voice and...continued

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...continued

Funny, touching, and entertaining. She really opens up and shares honestly about her life and experiences. Felt like I got to know her. Great songs. She's got a good voice. Very enjoyable. Highly recommend!

I enjoyed this play so much the first time, I came back with my entire family! They all agreed that Ms. Fisher is one sassy broad who held the entire (sold-out) audience in the palm of her hand and kept us entertained from beginning to end. And...continued

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...continued
