From the great synagogue in Tel Aviv to the great stages of Tel Aviv, London and New York, Dudu Fisher has become an international superstar. As Mr. Fisher said in his successful, off-Broadway, one-man show, "Never on Friday," "He was a Jewish Jean Valjean." He played the starring role in Les Miserables around the world and took part in the "Royal Command Performance" for the Queen of England. As an observant Jew, Mr. Fisher was the first actor on Broadway and in the West End to be excused from performing on Friday nights, Saturday matinees and all Jewish holidays. Though Mr. Fisher has performed with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra and the Queens and Baltimore Symphony orchestras, the London Symphony and for Britain's royal family, the Thai royal family And President Bill Clinton and Senator Hillary Clinton, he has never forgotten his roots. In addition to his brilliant renditions of Broadway music, he continues to perform traditional hassidic, yiddish and cantorial music to audiences all over the world.
