A Spoonful of Sherman - Greenwich Theatre and on tour

Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

A SPOONFUL of Sherman, the hugely entertaining new musical stage show featuring the Oscar-winning songs of Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman, will visit Greenwich Theatre from March 26 to March 30, 2018 as part of a national tour.

A Spoonful of Sherman stars Olivier-nominated Sophie-Louise Dann and former A1 band member Mark Read and features songs from the multi-award winning Disney films and West End stage shows Mary Poppins, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and The Jungle Book.

The cast also includes Glen Facey, Jenna Innes and Ben Stock.

The double Oscar-winning Sherman Brothers – Richard M Sherman & Robert B Sherman – remain one of the most formidable songwriting teams in family entertainment history. From 1964 onwards, their unparalleled partnership produced music, songs and scores for dozens of films, particularly many of Disney’s best loved titles including Mary Poppins, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, The Jungle Book, Bedknobs & Broomsticks, Charlotte’s Web and The Aristocats.

The highly prolific brothers were the sons of the great Al Sherman (1897-1973) who wrote songs for the likes of Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and many singers of the golden American Songbook period of the 1930s-1950s.

Robert J Sherman, son of Robert B. Sherman and a successful composer in his own right, brings the compelling story of one family’s century-long, award-winning musical journey to UK audiences. Three generations of Sherman songwriters are brought to life in this show which also includes songs from Robert J. Sherman’s own charming musical, Love Birds, which premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2015.

The tour opened in Darlington on March 12, 2018 and will continue to East Grinstead, Guildford, Windsor, London, Buxton, Swansea, Harrogate, Southport, Hornchurch, the Isle of Wight, Yeovil, Swindon, Lincoln, Weston Super Mare and Exeter.
