Chitty Chitty Bang Bang composers honored by NEA

Brothers Robert B. Sherman (born December 19, 1925) and Richard M. Sherman (born June 12, 1928) were awarded the 2008 Medal of Honor by the National Endowment for the Arts. The duo's song-writing career spans five decades including two Academy Awards, one for Mary Poppins (score) and one for "Chim Chim Cher-ee" (song). The Sherman Brothers also wrote the world's most translated and performed song, "It's A Small World (After All)". Chitty Chitty Bang Bang comes to the Center July 7-19, 2009 as part of the Bank of America Broadway Series.
