Following two sold-out runs, A Spoonful of Sherman returns to the London stage for two weeks only. This magical evening of cabaret, which celebrates a century of Sherman song writing, runs at Brasserie Zedel's renowned cabaret venue, Live at Zedel, in the heart of the West End near Piccadilly Circus, from 7 to 20 August 2017.
Robert and Richard Sherman 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 Cheree 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 (Love Birds, Bumblescratch) narrates the story of his musical family. From his grandfather, Tin Pan Alley writer Al Sherman, who wrote popular songs for performers as varied as Al Jolson, Frank Sinatra and Billie Holiday and through to current day with songs from his own fringe hit Love Birds.
We are delighted that Charlotte Wakefield is returning to the show. Charlotte made her West End debut starring in Spring Awakening (Lyric Hammersmith and West End). Most recently, Charlotte has been singing the Sherman Brothers music in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (No. 1 Tour) as Truly Scrumptious and the Number 1 Tour of Oklahoma! She played Maria in The Sound of Music at Regent's Park Theatre and has played Sophie in the West End and toured in the international production of Mamma Mia! She has been nominated twice for Best Actress In A Musical at the Olivier Awards in 2010 and 2014.
