Shirley Jones, who will make her London theatre debut at the Arts Theatre for a two-week season from March 22 through April 3. Shirley (pictured) has a place in movie history because her career caught the last gasps of the classic Hollywood film musical era. She played Laurie in Fred Zinnemann's screen version of Oklahoma!; she was Julie Jordan in Carousel; and in The Music Man she played Marian, the librarian. But she darkened her peachy image and won a best supporting actress Oscar for her role in Elmer Gantry opposite Burt Lancaster. Interestingly, she's probably best known for playing David Cassidy's screen mum in The Partridge Family - and yes, she was his stepmother in real life. Producer Barry Mishon has spent years persuading the actress to come to the UK. She'll sing a few songs and tell a few anecdotes. Years ago, when my dad left London to reclaim his 'kingdom' in Nigeria, three of the albums he took with him were the soundtracks from the three movie musicals she starred in, so I've always had a soft spot for Ms Jones.
