Mari Wilson's Pop Deluxe
Georgian Theatre, Stockton-On-Tees.
On Saturday 20th October Mari Wilson is headed to The Georgian Theatre as part of an extensive UK Tour promoting her new album Pop Deluxe.
Mari Wilson first arrived on the scene in the early '80s with her skyscraper beehive hairdo, bizarre sense of fashion and fully choreographed twelve piece band The Wilsations! With hit singles including 'Just What I've Always Wanted' and 'Cry Me A River', Mari's live shows were a real event. Her recent work covers a much wider range including the starring role in the musical 'Dusty'.
One of the best live performers in the country, Mari brings a unique style of glamour and storytelling, and great songs.
'Wilson is not one for scripted repartee between songs: one gets the impression that she is happy to talk just enough to drive the evening towards the next song. Which, when the singing is as good as this, is understandable' (Scott Matthewman, Musical Theatre Review).
