Shirley Jones, Patrick Cassidy

Shirley Jones and Patrick Cassidy are casting long shadows these days: In separate dance numbers, their magnified silhouettes loom against the back wall of the Ford Center stage, where they've recently joined the cast of "42nd Street." As far as anyone can say, they also appear to have made theatrical history as the first mother-son duo to star in a Broadway musical. Photo by - ©2004 Joan Marcus
