RRAZZ ROOM at THE HOTEL NIKKO (222 Mason Street, San Francisco, CA - 415-394-1189) will present the San Francisco debut of Academy Award-winning actress and singer Shirley Jones. Performances are Tuesday through Sunday, October 23rd through 28th at 8:00 pm (Sunday at 5:00 pm). In her new show, "An Evening of Story and Song", Ms. Jones will share stories and songs from her fabled career as one of Broadway, television and film's greatest leading ladies. Jones - familiar to audiences from films like Rodgers and Hammerstein's Oklahoma! and Carousel and a four year stint on television's "The Partridge Family" - got her big break as a chorus member in the original Broadway cast of South Pacific. She was then cast in a minor role in the Broadway production of Me And Juliet (1953) and eventually signed to play the lead on tour. The following year, with some valid stage experience under her belt, Jones was cast to star in Rodgers and Hammerstein's film version of Oklahoma! She followed the success of her film debut with the feature adaptation of Carousel. Opportunities continued to come her way, and she landed leading roles in April Love (1957) and Never Steal Anything Small (1959), which paired her with leading man James Cagney. In 1960, Jones 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. For the remainder of the decade, Jones continued to work in films. She returned to her musical roots as Marian the Librarian in The Music Man (1962); she took on lighter roles in the comedies The Courtship of Eddie's Father (1963) and Bedtime Story (1964); and showed her flair for the dramatic in The Happy Ending (1969) and The Cheyenne Social Club (1970). In 1970, Jones made a transition to the small screen in ABC's musical sitcom "The Partridge Family." The hit show made household names of its cast members David Cassidy (Jones' real-life stepson with Jack Cassidy), Susan Dey and Danny Bonaduce. These days Jones focuses her efforts on a successful concert career, touring the country in her one-woman symphony show. There is a $40-$45 cover plus a 2-drink minimum.

RRAZZ ROOM at THE HOTEL NIKKO (222 Mason Street, San Francisco, CA - 415-394-1189) will present the San Francisco debut of Academy Award-winning actress and singer Shirley Jones. Performances are Tuesday through Sunday, October 23rd through 28th at 8:00 pm (Sunday at 5:00 pm). In her new show, "An Evening of Story and Song", Ms. Jones will share stories and songs from her fabled career as one of Broadway, television and film's greatest leading ladies. Jones - familiar to audiences from films like Rodgers and Hammerstein's Oklahoma! and Carousel and a four year stint on television's "The Partridge Family" - got her big break as a chorus member in the original Broadway cast of South Pacific. She was then cast in a minor role in the Broadway production of Me And Juliet (1953) and eventually signed to play the lead on tour. The following year, with some valid stage experience under her belt, Jones was cast to star in Rodgers and Hammerstein's film version of Oklahoma! She followed the success of her film debut with the feature adaptation of Carousel. Opportunities continued to come her way, and she landed leading roles in April Love (1957) and Never Steal Anything Small (1959), which paired her with leading man James Cagney. In 1960, Jones 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. For the remainder of the decade, Jones continued to work in films. She returned to her musical roots as Marian the Librarian in The Music Man (1962); she took on lighter roles in the comedies The Courtship of Eddie's Father (1963) and Bedtime Story (1964); and showed her flair for the dramatic in The Happy Ending (1969) and The Cheyenne Social Club (1970). In 1970, Jones made a transition to the small screen in ABC's musical sitcom "The Partridge Family." The hit show made household names of its cast members David Cassidy (Jones' real-life stepson with Jack Cassidy), Susan Dey and Danny Bonaduce. These days Jones focuses her efforts on a successful concert career, touring the country in her one-woman symphony show. There is a $40-$45 cover plus a 2-drink minimum.

RRAZZ ROOM at THE HOTEL NIKKO (222 Mason Street, San Francisco, CA - 415-394-1189) will present the San Francisco debut of Academy Award-winning actress and singer Shirley Jones. Performances are Tuesday through Sunday, October 23rd through 28th at 8:00 pm (Sunday at 5:00 pm). In her new show, "An Evening of Story and Song", Ms. Jones will share stories and songs from her fabled career as one of Broadway, television and film's greatest leading ladies. Jones - familiar to audiences from films like Rodgers and Hammerstein's Oklahoma! and Carousel and a four year stint on television's "The Partridge Family" - got her big break as a chorus member in the original Broadway cast of South Pacific. She was then cast in a minor role in the Broadway production of Me And Juliet (1953) and eventually signed to play the lead on tour. The following year, with some valid stage experience under her belt, Jones was cast to star in Rodgers and Hammerstein's film version of Oklahoma! She followed the success of her film debut with the feature adaptation of Carousel. Opportunities continued to come her way, and she landed leading roles in April Love (1957) and Never Steal Anything Small (1959), which paired her with leading man James Cagney. In 1960, Jones 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. For the remainder of the decade, Jones continued to work in films. She returned to her musical roots as Marian the Librarian in The Music Man (1962); she took on lighter roles in the comedies The Courtship of Eddie's Father (1963) and Bedtime Story (1964); and showed her flair for the dramatic in The Happy Ending (1969) and The Cheyenne Social Club (1970). In 1970, Jones made a transition to the small screen in ABC's musical sitcom "The Partridge Family." The hit show made household names of its cast members David Cassidy (Jones' real-life stepson with Jack Cassidy), Susan Dey and Danny Bonaduce. These days Jones focuses her efforts on a successful concert career, touring the country in her one-woman symphony show. There is a $40-$45 cover plus a 2-drink minimum.

SF: SHIRLEY JONES "AN EVENING OF STORY AND SONG"

RRAZZ ROOM at THE HOTEL NIKKO (222 Mason Street, San Francisco, CA - 415-394-1189) will present the San Francisco debut of Academy Award-winning actress and singer Shirley Jones. Performances are Tuesday through Sunday, October 23rd through 28th at 8:00 pm (Sunday at 5:00 pm). In her new show, "An Evening of Story and Song", Ms. Jones will share stories and songs from her fabled career as one of Broadway, television and film's greatest leading ladies. Jones - familiar to audiences from films like Rodgers and Hammerstein's Oklahoma! and Carousel and a four year stint on television's "The Partridge Family" - got her big break as a chorus member in the original Broadway cast of South Pacific. She was then cast in a minor role in the Broadway production of Me And Juliet (1953) and eventually signed to play the lead on tour. The following year, with some valid stage experience under her belt, Jones was cast to star in Rodgers and Hammerstein's film version of Oklahoma! She followed the success of her film debut with the feature adaptation of Carousel. Opportunities continued to come her way, and she landed leading roles in April Love (1957) and Never Steal Anything Small (1959), which paired her with leading man James Cagney. In 1960, Jones 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. For the remainder of the decade, Jones continued to work in films. She returned to her musical roots as Marian the Librarian in The Music Man (1962); she took on lighter roles in the comedies The Courtship of Eddie's Father (1963) and Bedtime Story (1964); and showed her flair for the dramatic in The Happy Ending (1969) and The Cheyenne Social Club (1970). In 1970, Jones made a transition to the small screen in ABC's musical sitcom "The Partridge Family." The hit show made household names of its cast members David Cassidy (Jones' real-life stepson with Jack Cassidy), Susan Dey and Danny Bonaduce. These days Jones focuses her efforts on a successful concert career, touring the country in her one-woman symphony show. There is a $40-$45 cover plus a 2-drink minimum.
