An excerpt from Steve Capra's
interview with Mr. Sherman
in Theater Voices
SC: You live
in London, and introduce your shows here. Is that just because you like
the city, or does it have to do with the theatre community here?
MS: I do love the theatre community -
and London is my home. In that sense I'm very out of touch with New
York, and I don't think I can talk that knowledgeably about the
community there. There is a very strong one here, very nurturing. It's
extremely bitchy in a very nice way, in that everyone does bitch
everyone else, but there is also a subtext of enormous support here. I
think in New York, on the surface, there's a great deal of support, and
the subtext is bitchery. Here, it's the other way around. I suppose I
prefer it that way.
