A musical legend's West End debut

Shirley Jones was a virtual unknown when Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein propelled her to stardom in their 1955 musical Oklahoma! She went on to star in countless films, won an Academy Award, and in the 1970's she was introduced to a whole new generation on TV, as the matriarch of The Partridge family.

Shirley is now in the UK with her son, Broadway star Patrick Cassidy and they will make their West End and UK debuts at the London Arts Theatre from Monday 22nd March until Saturday 3rd April 2010, with a limited run of 12 performances only.
