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

I wish i could add another star to the rating, it was that good. Superb acting, dialogue, relevancy, intensity. I didn't even notice the time. What a jewel to find. It could be easily on a bigger more visible stage and the intimacy would not be lost. Get there and see this one.
Quotes & Highlights
Based in part on the shooting of Amadou Diallo in the Bronx in 1999.
Laura Coker in association with the Whitefire Theatre presents the world premiere of Firehouse by award-winning playwright, Pedro Antonio Garcia, directed by Bryan Rasmussen, consulting producer Robert “Bobby” Moresco (co-writer of Crash).
Based on true events, this life and death story of the moral choices of firemen explodes when a young girl dies and the firehouse is blamed.
Firehouse is a re-examination of the Amadou Diallo issue set inside a South Bronx firehouse. A probationary, rookie fireman responds to a fire rescuing a veteran firefighter, in lieu of a 12 year-old girl, who dies as a result. The community is outraged; mass demonstrations ensue. The rookie fireman, a former cop who had previously been tried and acquitted – along with three other cops - for the murder of an unarmed Puerto Rican, claims to have not seen the young girl.
Is the rookie fireman telling the truth, or is this a case of a cover-up involving race?
Cast: Kamar de los Reyes, Gerald Downey, Jossara Jinaro, Ed Morrone, Elvis Nolasco, Bryan Rasmussen, and Jon Southwell
