Mari Wilson: ‘Am I The Same Girl – Mari Sings Dusty’
FRI 2ND MAY | 8PM | TICKETS £20, £25, £30, £35
Tickets from £20. Mari Wilson (The Neasden Queen of Soul) first arrived on the scene in the early eighties with her skyscraper beehive hairdo, bizarre sense of fashion and fully choreographed twelve piece band The Wilsations. Mari’s live shows were spoken about as an event – pure entertainment.
In 2000 Mari was the obvious choice to play the legend Dusty Springfield on the hugely successful nationwide tour of Dusty the Musical.
Tonight Mari returns to The Hippodrome to pay homage to Dusty with her unique interpretations of the classic hits, along with some lesser-known gems.
An album of Dusty songs together with a UK tour is scheduled for 2015.
