In 2000, Mari Wilson was chosen to play the iconic Dusty Springfield in the hugely successful UK tour of “Dusty – The Musical”. Mari’s association with Dusty, acclaimed by many as the best female pop singer to ever emerge out of Britain, continued with Mari’s own sell-out show: “Mari Sings Dusty”, in 2014.
Now, Mari launches her brand new show “Ready Steady Girls”, featuring songs that influenced Mari as she was growing up. It features timeless songs, not only by Dusty, but also Petula, Cilla and many others – every song a classic!
Join Mari, whose own hits include “Just What I Always Wanted” and “Cry Me A River” for a fab evening, with just a hint of theatricality, on her personal, emotional and often hilarious journey through life, as she sings hit, after hit, after hit!
Every song is a story in its own right and Wilson is a story teller par excellence, extracting meaning and emotion from each one and communicating them impeccably to her audience, her voice as formidable an instrument as ever. Allaboutjazz.com
