It’s a musical rock n’ roller coaster ride, filled with humor and pathos, served with cornbread and cleavage. The longest-running musical solo show in America is back at the Playhouse with a new look, new songs, and a special post show reception with Shelley Fisher, the Down Home Diva herself!
Written and performed by Ms. Fisher, with original songs by Fisher, Harold Payne and Ken Hirsch. “A radiant performer!” (reviewplays.com), Shelley Fisher, born with a slightly tarnished silver fork in her mouth, 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.
A fabulous evening of theatre, a delicious post-show wine, cheese, hors d’oeuvres and desserts spread and shmoozing with Ms. Fisher, and support for the Playhouse – it’s a Win! Win! Win!
“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 fourteen show-stopping numbers co-written with renowned hit makers, Kenny Hirsch (I’ve Never Been To Me, No One In The World) and Harold Payne (Bobby Womack, Snoop Dogg).
