A Spoonful of Sherman (U.S. Premiere)
April 11 – May 5, 2019
3Below Theaters & Lounge, San Jose, CA
A New Musical for the entire family, with music from Oscar-winning Disney songwriters The Sherman Brothers, Tin Pan Alley songwriter Al Sherman and present day composer Robert J. Sherman. Subtitled “The Songbook of Your Childhood”, A Spoonful of Sherman is a musical revue which celebrates three generations of creator Robert J. Sherman’s songwriting family’s century-long musical journey including repertoire from the Brothers’: “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious”, “Chim-chim cher-ee”, “Its a Small World (After All)”, “Winnie the Pooh”, “Feed the Birds”, “The Wonderful Thing About Tiggers”, “I Wanna Be Like You” and “Hushabye Mountain”, ending on a rousing rendition of “Let’s Go Fly a Kite!”.
In the early twentieth century, Al Sherman was one of the most sought-after songwriters on New York’s Tin Pan Alley, with songs recorded by Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Frank Sinatra, Al Jolson, Bing Crosby, amongst others. Al’s sons, Robert B. and Richard M. Sherman, were the most successful songwriting partnership in the history of Hollywood composing more movie musical songs and acclaimed film scores than any other writing team. Their Oscar-winning songs from films such as Mary Poppins, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, The Jungle Book, The Aristocats, Winnie The Pooh, and The Slipper and The Rose and more have entertained the world for more than 60 years. And last, we hear some beautiful songs by Robbie Sherman who picked up the baton for the third generation and celebrates his family’s legacy in this show.
