It’s Shelley Fisher, the Down Home Diva, in a musical rock n’ roller coaster ride, filled with humor and pathos, as this good southern Jewish girl fights prejudice and personal tragedy to fulfill her vision of helping the world celebrate diversity, dreams and determination. Now when we need it the most, Shelley brings you the longest-running musical solo show in America, one performance only, Saturday, September 9 at 7:30pm. And the fabulous Miss Fisher is donating all proceeds to the Doors-Open Santa Monica Playhouse Benefit Campaign.
“Shelley Fisher rips the roof off with her bluesy, ballsy, autobiographical one-woman show – while ripping at the heart strings of her packed houses. Fisher’s story of a good little southern Jewish girl with big rock and roll dreams gets fueled by 17 show-stopping numbers co-written with renowned hit makers, Kenny Hirsch (I’ve Never Been To Me, No One In The World), Harold Payne (Bobby Womack, Snoop Dogg) and Steve Rawlins (I Wanna Win a Grammy Before I Am A Granny; arranger for The Emmys, Grammys, Smokey Robinson and more).

Share this uplifting, life-affirming, powerful musical with family and friends, and celebrate the joy of live theatre!
