After successful performances around the U.S., singer-songwriter Shelley Fisher's stirring one-woman show, THE HEBREW HILLBILLY: Fifty Shades of Oy Vey! -- about a little Jewish girl from Memphis with big rock 'n' roll ambitions -- lands at Ft. Lauderdale's Empire Stage. Raised in the Deep South, Fisher has had success as a jazz and blues vocalist and a recording artist in L.A., along with creating her own romantic-comedy cooking show, Forkplay. She even had a close encounter with the King (Elvis)! Fisher's tale is a heartwarming testament to the power of dreams and determination and finding purpose beyond the Hollywood sign. THE HEBREW HILLBILLY, her funny and moving musical celebration, features 15 original Memphis-inspired pop, blues and rock 'n' roll songs, penned by Fisher along with pop composers Harold Payne and Ken Hirsch (who also serves as the production's musical director).
This show is recommended for ages 12 and older.
Running time is one hour and 30 minutes, with one 15-minute intermission.
