Robert J Sherman is a composer, lyricist and book writer who is proud to carry on the enduring legacy of his father and uncle, Robert B and Richard M Sherman, a.k.a The Sherman Brothers, whose childhood musical classics include Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and Mary Poppins (whose stage versions are both currently revived on tour).
