Part two of my conversation with Robbie Sherman isn't as controversial as part one, but it does have a lot to offer about Robbie's father Robert Sherman, his memoir Moose, and Robbie's new musical review, A Spoonful of Sherman, which received great notices in London and will be back for a return engagement in April.
But yeah, about that controversial part. This has certainly been an interesting week in The Mouse Castle.
As I said I would last week, I reached out to Robbie's brother Jeffrey Sherman and his cousin Gregg Sherman about Robbie's assertion that Jeff and Gregg's 2009 documentary The Boys: The Sherman Brothers Story misrepresents the true relationship between the brothers Richard and Robert Sherman. I asked both Jeff and Gregg if they would like to appear on The Mouse Castle Lounge to address Robbie's comments.
The short version is they both said no.
For the longer version, give a listen to today's Mouse Castle Lounge. After my interview with Robbie (where he tells some really great stories about his dad and Saving Mr. Banks), I give you my take on the aftermath of last week's show and the curious visit Jeff Sherman made to The Mouse Castle Facebook page.
Of course, I'd love to hear your thoughts on all this too. Please call The Mouse Castle Lounge Listener Line at (702) 475-5625 or leave your comments below. Thanks!
