After successful performances around the country, The Hebrew Hillbillly, singer-songwriter Shelley Fisher's stirring one-woman show, comes to Whitefire Theatre. Chronicling her upbringing as a Jew in Memphis through her adventures in and out of the entertainment industry, Fisher's tale is a heart-warming testament to the power of dreams. Raised in the Deep South, Fisher has had success as a jazz and blues vocalist, and as a recording artist in L.A., along with creating her own romantic-comedy cooking show, Forkplay. This funny and moving show features 15 original songs, penned by Fisher along with pop composers Harold Payne and Ken Hirsch (who also serves as the production's musical director). This pre-Mother's Day production will feature a post-show reception including cupcakes and wine. Learn More

This was the second time I saw this event. I took four of my friends to see it, this time. My friends enjoyed it very much. She does a great job.
The acoustics in this theatre aren't the greatest, I would suggest sitting at least 4 rows and up.
