News: Daniel Boys and Helena Blackman help the medicine go down in A Spoonful of Sherman

Helena Blackman and Daniel Boys star alongside Robert J. Sherman in an evening of musical theatre cabaret celebrating a century of Sherman song writing.

Following two sold out critically-acclaimed London runs, A Spoonful of Sherman returns for two weeks only to Live at Zédel in the heart of London’s West End. Joining Christopher Hamilton on piano are Helena Blackman and Daniel Boys.

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 to Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious and Feed the Birds in Mary Poppins to 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 narrates the story of his musical family. From his Grandfather, Tin Pan Alley writer Al Sherman 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.

The show is directed by Stewart Nicholls.

 

A Spoonful of Sherman plays Live at Zédel from 7 – 20 August 2017. For more information or to purchase tickets, please visit the website.
