Legendary stage and screen star Shirley Jones will make her Café Carlyle debut from March 4-15 with her solo concert, An Evening With Shirley Jones. Grammy and Emmy winner John McDaniel will serve as musical director and accompany Jones at the March 4-8 concerts, with Ron Abel taking his place March 11-15.

Jones will perform the songs of Richard Rodgers, Oscar Hammerstein II, and Lorenz Hart. She's no stranger to that material, having made her Broadway debut in the chorus of the original production of South Pacific and later starring in the film versions of Oklahoma! and Carousel. She won an Oscar for her screen performance in Elmer Gantry and is perhaps best known to television audiences as Shirley Partridge on The Partridge Family.

The Café Carlyle is a New York cabaret institution, and has recently hosted shows by the likes of Elaine Stritch, Sutton Foster, Laura Osnes, and John Lloyd Young, among countless others.
