Celebrated songwriter/producer Robert J. Sherman and finance professionals Bret Goldin and Andrew Kaplan announce the formation of Sherman Theatrical Entertainment Ltd., a musical theatre and entertainment company.  The new company is poised to bring the award-winning and critically acclaimed theatrical productions of Robert J. Sherman, The Sherman Brothers, and Al Sherman to stage, screen, and streaming. Plans for music publishing and licensing of select songs and projects from the beloved Sherman family legacy portfolio best known for film scores including Mary Poppins and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and theme park songs such as It’s a Small World After All are also underway.

Robert J. Sherman serves as Chairman and Chief Creative Officer of the new venture.  He continues the family legacy which first made its mark on the industry in 1906 when Robert’s great-grandfather, Samuel Sherman (1871-1948) was appointed conductor of the Austro-Hungarian Empire’s royal orchestra by Emperor Franz Josef II.  Samuel’s son, Tin Pan Alley songwriter, Al Sherman (1897-1973) would come to write hundreds of hit songs for iconic artists including Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, Billie Holiday, Bing Crosby, and Peggy Lee.  Al’s sons Robert B. Sherman (1925-2012) and Richard M. Sherman (1928- ) (aka “The Sherman Brothers”) remain one of the most successful songwriting partnerships in American songwriting history, sharing credits that include Mary Poppins, The Jungle Book, Winnie the Pooh, Bedknobs and Broomsticks, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, and It’s a Small World (After All). 

Bret Goldin and Andrew Kaplan serve as co-CEOs overseeing business operations and finance. They are also responsible for strategic partnerships, acquisitions, and new licensing opportunities.
