Two years later he made his Broadway debut as an actor in the Federal Theatre Project's Horse Eats Hat.[1]

Additional theatre credits include the inaugural Mercury Theatre productions Caesar and The Shoemaker's Holiday,[3]:339–340 Very Warm for May, Cyrano de Bergerac, Boyd's Daughter (which he also directed) and Mary, Mary. He won the Tony Award for Best Featured Actor in a Musical for Two's Company and How Now, Dow Jones.[1]

Sherman's many television credits include such early anthology series as Kraft Television Theatre, Studio One, The Alcoa Hour, and Hallmark Hall of Fame and a regular role on The Tammy Grimes Show. His feature films included The Solid Gold Cadillac, Mary, Mary, in which he reprised his role in the play, and Oh Dad, Poor Dad, Mamma's Hung You in the Closet and I'm Feelin' So Sad.[1]

Sherman died of a stroke in Springfield, Illinois.[1]
