It’s a musical rock n’ roller coaster ride that begins in the heart of the Mississippi delta, filled with humor and pathos served with cornbread and cleavage. Written and performed by Shelley Fisher, with original songs by Fisher, Harold Payne and Ken Hirsch. Born in Memphis, Tennessee with a slightly tarnished silver fork in her mouth, Shelley Fisher, the Down Home Diva, brings her blockbuster show to Santa Monica Playhouse direct from her sold out performances across the country, as a special one-night-only event to support the Playhouse Benefit Campaign. Over the course of her career, Shelley has recorded a solo album on Fantasy Records, wrote “Disgorilla,” the sequel to Rick Dee’s “Disco Duck,” and scored a vocal it with “Wonder Woman” on Road Show Records. Her live performance lineup includes the Playbox Clubs International, the Improv, Marina City Club, Moonshadows and BB King’s. Her unique blend of music and comedy has captivated audiences worldwide. In addition to “The Hebrew Hillbilly,” Shelley is the creator and star of the hit comedy cooking show, “ForkPlay®.” Santa Monica Playhouse, now celebrating 55 years of continuous theatrical and educational services to the community, is supported in part by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors through the Los Angeles County Arts Commission, the City of Santa Monica and the Santa Monica Arts Commission and US Bank. Ticket includes a post-show champagne and dessert buffet, meet ‘n’ greet and photo op with Ms. Fisher. Proceeds support the Santa Monica Playhouse Benefit Campaign.
