Nearly six decades into her career, Academy Award-winning singer and actress Shirley Jones makes her Café Carlyle debut with a two-week run of An Evening with Shirley Jones, continuing through March 15. Grammy, Emmy and Tony Award-winner John McDaniel (Annie Get Your Gun, Patti Lupone: Live!, The Rosie O'Donnell Show) will serve as Music director and will accompany her on piano March 4-8; actor-composer Ron Abel (Happily Divorced, I Love Lucy's 50th Anniversary Special) will take his place for the performances March 11-15. She'll perform the songs of Rogers, Hammerstein and Hart. Check out photos from her first performance below!

An Evening with Shirley Jones will run Tuesday - Friday at 8:45pm; and Saturday at 8:45pm & 10:45pm. Tickets are $70 ($120 for premium seating, $50 for bar seating) Tuesday - Thursday & the Saturday late show; and $80 ($130 for premium seating, $60 for bar seating) on Friday and Saturday. Reservations can be made at www.thecarlyle.com or by phone at 212.744.1600. Café Carlyle is located in The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel (35 East 76th Street, at Madison Avenue).

Shirley Jones received her big break as a chorus member in the original Broadway cast of South Pacific, then rocketed to fame after films like Rodgers and Hammerstein's Oklahoma! and Carousel. In 1960, she shed her girl-next-door image by taking a dramatic turn in the film Elmer Gantry. Her performance as a jilted girlfriend turned prostitute earned her admiration and an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. In addition to her role as Shirley Partridge on ABC's The Partridge Family, Jones has had recurring television roles on The Drew Carey Show, Sabrina, The Teenage Witch, Melrose Place, and most recently General Hospital, Raising Hope and Hot In Cleveland. Her autobiography, simply titled Shirley Jones: A Memoir, was released to commercial success in the summer of 2013. For more information, visit www.shirleyjones.com.
