A Spoonful of Sherman is a two act musical revue which premiered on January 6, 2014 at the St. James Theatre in London, England.

Robert J. Sherman produced, wrote and emceed A Spoonful of Sherman. The event also served as the book launch for Sherman's father, Robert B. Sherman's (posthumously released) autobiography: Moose: Chapters From My Life for which Sherman also served as the book's editor. After each performance, Sherman participated in a book signing. The show was billed as "A Celebration of the Life, Times and Musical World of Robert B. Sherman" and was well received by the crowd and the critics alike. 

The name of the show is derived from the iconic Sherman Brothers song, "A Spoonful of Sugar". 

Premiere

The premiere cast consisted of four rising West End theatre stars including Charlotte Wakefield, Emma Williams, Stuart Matthew Price and Greg Castiglioni. Musical Direction was provided by Colin Billing and the show was directed by Stewart Nicholls.  In 2015 a double CD of the show was produced by Nick Lloyd Webber and was released by SimG Records. In the 2017 revival of the show, focus of the show's narrative shifted to both Sherman Brothers and Al Sherman, rather than just the life of Robert B. Sherman.  The 2017 show played at Live At Zédel in London and featured Daniel Boys, Helena Blackman and Christopher Hamilton.
