The evening will feature a guest appearance by Robert's son Robbie, himself a writer of musicals (but who will not appear April 15 or 18), performing alongside West End performers, including singers Greg Castiglioni, Stuart Matthew Price, Charlotte Wakefield and Emma Williams (the original West End Truly Scrumptious in the stage version of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang at the London Palladium). According to press materials, songs featured will span 90 years of Sherman family history by including music from the Sherman Brothers' father, Tin Pan Alley songwriter Al Sherman. 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. Their repertoire includes the Oscar-winning "Chim Chim Cher-ee," "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" and "Feed the Birds" from the film "Mary Poppins" to "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang," which earned them a third Oscar nomination.
It is presented by Musicworld (UK) Ltd. and The Entertainment Business, in association with St. James Productions.
