Subtitled "The Songbook of Your Childhood", A Spoonful of Sherman is a musical revue created by Robert J. Sherman which celebrates three generations of his songwriting family’s century-long musical journey.
Currently about to embark on its premiere UK/Ireland tour, Robbie Sherman wrote, produced and emceed the show for three London productions which occurred between 2014-2017. Those productions were at the St. James Theatre (now called The Other Palace) and Live at Zédel. The first production also served as the UK book launch for Robbie's father's (posthumously released) autobiography: Moose: Chapters From My Life, for which Robbie was also the book's editor. Songs in the show come from the music libraries of Al Sherman, The Sherman Brothers and Robbie Sherman.
The (2-CD) Original London Cast Recording of A Spoonful of Sherman was produced by Nick Lloyd Webber and is for sale on iTunes and Amazon.

Following its first run in January 2014, A Spoonful of Sherman returned to London's St James Theatre for an encore engagement in April 2014. The Original London Cast Recording, produced by Nick Lloyd Webber, was released in 2015 by SimG Records.
In August 2017 A Spoonful of Sherman played at Live at Zedel.
In 2018 the show was completely reworked and the stage musical version of the show toured all through the UK and Ireland playing in 25 cities.
“A show that strings together one joyous hit after another, delivered by a first-rate quartet of singers.”
"The audience were on the edge of their seats yearning for more."
“It really was supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. Riffs and mash-ups on Winnie The Pooh, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Mary Poppins and a smashing Al Sherman Medley made the evening all too short, all too few songs, all the more memorable. I feel privileged to have been there. A truly scrumptious smorgasbord of smash hits by the Sherman Brothers.”
"Supercalifragilistic-expialidocious! An evening of magic and delight."
“It is a wonder that this charming show has not been staged before. Amidst all of Broadway’s giant songwriting partnerships, none reaches out to the child within us quite like the legacy of the Sherman Brothers. Cleverly crafted songs that speak of hope against adversity, written in verses that talk to every age. This show deserves to tour and when it comes to your town, don’t miss it!”
"There’s plenty to both surprise and delight here."
“A cavalcade of Sherman, three generations, no medicine, just charm, and one or two genuine surprises...to demonstrate that the legacy lives on – ‘Music of the Spheres’ by Robert J. Sherman (given a real sheen by Stuart Matthew Price). I want to hear that again, as I do ‘The Whistle Tune’ from Busker Alley.”
"Something magical happened at St James Theatre – it was a night of revelation, emotion and sheer joy."
"I predict a great future for A Spoonful of Sherman. Don’t miss this great cast!"
“A delightful way to spend a couple of hours - great fun."
“Walt Disney may have built a magical ‘toon empire but it was the Sherman Brothers who gave the mouse maestro his voice. A Spoonful of Sherman is a night of pure indulgence.”
“Truly scrumptious. The overwhelming power of their music is inescapable.”
