Joshua Sherman
Joshua was groomed in both the visual and performing arts throughout his childhood.

From ages 13-16, he worked alongside his childhood hero, legendary caricaturist, Al Hirschfeld, as assistant archivist – and compiled a history of the American Theater in the 20th century through Hirschfeld’s work.

When Joshua was 12 years old, while working on the very first production of PERFECT PICTURE (then entitled ROCKWELL), he was inspired by scenic designer William John Aupperlee to combine his love of theater and art – and decided to pursue a career in theatrical design.

Joshua’s design mentors include ballet designer Peter Harvey; famed production designer Santo Loquasto; the iconic costume designer Willa Kim, and legendary theater and film designer, Tony Walton.

From 1998 - 2001, as part of Tony Walton’s Broadway design team, Joshua worked on the TONY AWARD winning Annie Get Your Gun (starring Bernadette Peters); Elaine May’s Taller than a Dwarf (starring Matthew Broderick and Parker Posey); Harold Pinter’s Ashes to Ashes (starring David Straithairn); and Easter Parade (starring Tommy Tune and Sandy Duncan).

Since 2000, Joshua has focused his talents on producing.

Producing credits include productions of THE ODD POTATO, as well as the corresponding Broadway Album (featuring 20 Tony Award Winners); productions of PERFECT PICTURE, as well as the corresponding concept album; and the digital series, CHARMERS, a web series of short musical films in the genre of classic movie musicals.

Currently in development:  ANTONIO’S SONG / I WAS DREAMING OF A SON – a one-man play inspired by the life of Antonio Edwards Suarez, co-written by Suarez and Pulitzer Prize finalist, Dael Orlandersmith.

Joshua is a proud Board Member of The Al Hirschfeld Foundation, a Voting member of the Recording Academy, and is a graduate of Marymount Manhattan College and Stony Brook University Medical School.  

Joshua is also a practicing physician - and Created/Produced the pilot of 100 HOSPITAL DRIVE, a health show that both educates and entertains by using music, puppets, animation, and real healthcare providers to deliver basic health education in a fun and easy-to-understand format.

Most recently, he has designed and renovated an 18th century Gristmill in East Arlington, VT – which is being developed as an Arts Center with an event space, theater, sound studio, museum, gallery, and artist residency.
