|The Cast of A Spoonful of Sugar|
In a heartfelt biographical and musical tribute to his grandfather, dad, and uncle, A Spoonful of Sherman, Robert (Robbie) J. Sherman (book) takes us through a ninety-year tasting of fifty-five of the songs his family – including himself – have written, picking them from the more than 250 others he could not include. Premiering in the U.K. in 2014 and having since toured extensively there and in Ireland, A Spoonful of Sherman now has its U.S. premiere at San Jose’s newest venue for live productions of musicals, Guggenheim Entertainment’s 3Below Theatres and Lounge. With a cast of five who sing, dance, and cavort with much talent and glee through the plethora of lyrics and tunes, 3Below’s A Spoonful of Sherman is overall delightful and a temptation for humming/singing along that is difficult to resist – songs like “Chim Chim Cher-ee,” “Winnie the Pooh,” “That’s What Friends Are For,” “I Wanna Be Like You,” “Spoonful of Sugar,” and of course the world’s more translated and most performed song, “It’s A Small World.”
