Jewish Musical Cabaret With Lisa Fishman

Yiddishland California presents a Jewish musical cabaret by Lisa Fishman featuring Yiddish, English, and Ladino songs – many with new English lyrics.

This show is open to all!

Singer, actor, musician and songwriter, Lisa Fishman, most recently played Bobe Tsaytl (aka: “Grandma Tzeitl”), as well as understudied Golde, Yente and Sheyndl, in the Off Broadway hit, “Fiddler on the Roof” in Yiddish directed by Academy Award winner, Joel Grey. Originally from Chicago and having lived in LA and New York City for the past two decades, Lisa has had a diverse career that has taken her from Klezmer bands to Musical Theater to Yiddish Theater to work in Rock, Pop, Jazz and Folk Music, Children’s Television, Voice Over and more.

She is known for being one of the lead singers of Chicago’s renowned Maxwell Street Klezmer Band for many years, as well as starring in numerous productions with NYC’s National Yiddish Theater Folksbiene. She has performed around the world, appeared on recordings and television, shared the stage with many luminaries from the world of Theater and Jewish Music, and recently provided the voice for a new dancing plush toy called “My Yiddishe Bubbie” that can be found at Bed, Bath and Beyond! Lisa has a deep passion for Jewish music and loves being able to share it with others.
