SAM SHERWOOD

SAM SHERWOOD (Music Director and Performer) is thrilled to be back at Geva after appearing in Million Dollar Quartet in 2018. Although he’s lived in New York City for over a decade, Sam grew up down the road in Naples, NY. His grandparents, George and Mary Sherwood, founded the Bristol Valley Playhouse in 1964. A lifelong fan of Johnny Cash, as music director, Sam aims to bring the power of these great songs to life. As the songwriter Harlan Howard said: “Three chords and the truth.” As a performer, Sam has been all over the world, including performing in a dozen productions of Ring of Fire, including the European premiere in Vienna, Austria at Vienna’s English Theatre. Other recent credits include Woody Sez (The Irish Repertory Theatre, off-Broadway); Godspell, Once, Stand By Your Man and The Road: My Life With John Denver (Ivoryton Playhouse); A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Pump Boys & Dinettes, Lost Highway and Cotton Patch Gospel (Flat Rock Playhouse); Million Dollar Quartet (Arvada Center; Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival and John W. Engeman Theater); Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story (NC Theatre; Theater By The Sea and John W. Engeman Theatre). Catch Sam in an upcoming episode of Amazon’s The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. sherwoodsounds.com
