Patrick Cassidy and Shirley Jones, actor and actress, mother and son, opened their run as 42nd Street's Julian Marsh and Dorothy Brock on May 7.

Shirley Jones has appeared on Broadway in South Pacific and Maggie Flynn, but is perhaps most beloved for her roles in the film versions of Carousel and Oklahoma! Patrick Cassidy is no stranger to the theatre, having made appearances in both Annie Get Your Gun and Aida in recent years.

Cassidy shares the special moment with his wife, Melissa, at left, while Jones is seen with Sheila MacRae at an afterparty following their performance in the lobby of the Ford Center for the Performing Arts on West 42nd Street in New York City. Below, the duo and the rest of the cast give their curtain call.
