Robert B Sherman and Richard M Sherman, aka The Sherman Brothers, are the most successful songwriting partnership in the history of Hollywood, composing more movie musical songs and acclaimed film scores than any other writing team. From the Oscar-winning Chim Chim Cher-ee, Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious and Feed the Birds in Mary Poppins to The Jungle Book, The Aristocats the unforgettable Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, which earned them their third of nine Oscar nominations, their songs have entertained the world for more than 60 years.

Third generation songwriter Robert J Sherman (Love Birds, Bumblescratch) narrates the story of his musical family. From his Grandfather Tin Pan Alley writer Al Sherman, who wrote popular songs for performers as varied as Al Jolson, Frank Sinatra and Billie Holiday, and through to the current day with songs from his own fringe hit Love Birds.

Following two sold-out, critically acclaimed London runs in 2014 at the St James Theatre (now The Other Palace), A Spoonful of Sherman returns with two new cast members – Helena Blackman (Titanic, How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria?) and Daniel Boys (The Boys in the Band, Spamalot, Avenue Q, Rent) – as well as musical director Christopher Hamilton on piano. The production is directed by Stewart Nicholls.

A Spoonful of Sherman continues at Live at Zedel at Brasserie Zedel in London until this Sunday 20 August 2017.

“‘It’s a practically perfect introduction drawing on a family fistful of songwriting characters… the beautiful, tender harmonies of Blackman and Boys, especially with Feed The Birds (tuppence a bag!) which will stay with us.”

Fiona Jane Weston: “Beautifully staged (Stewart Nicholls)… featuring the ebullient Daniel Boys, the crystal clear dewdrop voice of Helena Blackman, excellent piano skills and occasional comic showstealers from Christopher Hamilton, alongside the endearing personality of Robbie providing narration.”
