Review from VICKI

TRULY AN ENJOYABLE PERFORMANCE. THE STORY AND THE SINGING WAS VERY GOOD. THE PERFORMER LOOKED GREAT AND SHE HAD ON SOME KILLER BOOTS. VERY WELL WORTH MY TRIP AND TO BE OUT ON A WEEK NIGHT. GO SEE IT IF YOU CAN.

Review from DEANN

Ms. Fisher is just fabulous! Loved her story and to me the original songs written by her and composer/pianist Kenny Hirsch were better than Broadway! Fun evening.

Description

This one-woman show chronicles Shelley Fisher’s life in and out of the music business. Growing up Jewish in the deep South with a flamboyant mother who frowned on her dating the local redneck boys, this Hebrew Hillbilly begins singing as a little girl and never stops. From her early years as a blonde bombshell, through her current incarnation as The Memphis Belle of L.A., Fisher has ridden a show business rollercoaster that slows down just long enough for her audience to climb aboard for the ride. Travel along on this deeply personal yet universally appealing funny and tragic journey of Delta dreams, detours and determinations. The production is directed by Chris DeCarlo and produced by Debra Ehrhardt, with music by Kenneth Hirsch, Harold Payne and Shelley Fisher.
