Shirley Jones has enjoyed a long and prolific career in Hollywood and on Broadway, so when she appears in the West End in 2010, it will be a show no one will want to miss. The legendary actress got her break in “Oklahoma!” in 1955 and since then has been showing others how it is done during a career few could even dream of.
She was a relative newcomer when she was cast in “Oklahoma!” in 1955, but since then she has managed to appear in countless productions worldwide. Her credits since that date have included European tours of the show and films like “April Love”, “The Music Man” and “Carousel”. She then earned a coveted Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress when she played a prostitute in the drama movie “Elmer Gantry”, raising her profile to unprecedented levels and securing her place at the top of her game. However, for some people she is best known for playing Shirley Partridge in the hit sitcom “The Partridge Family”, which made her a household name around the world and propelled her stardom through the decades.
So it is safe to call Shirley Jones’s upcoming appearance in her show “Shirley Jones in Concert” highly anticipated, with tickets for the event likely to sell out fast. She has legions of fans across the UK, but she has never performed in Britain before, making this solo show her West End debut and a historical event or the capital. The press material has thus far described “Shirley Jones in Concert” as a special event and an occasion in which a living legend performs in the UK for the first time. With only 12 performances at the Arts Theatre, fans will be clamouring to get their tickets.
But whilst this will be her West End stage debut, the star has already earned her name on Broadway, where she has been appearing in popular shows for decades, from her debut in “Oklahoma!” to productions such as “South Pacific” in 1953, “Maggie Flynn” (1967) and “42nd Street”. She is an unbeatable icon and someone whose shows should not be missed.
“Shirley Jones in Concert” sees an icon appear on the stage of the Arts Theatre from Monday 22nd March 2010 to Saturday 3rd April 2010.
