HOLLYWOOD—Mari first arrived on the scene in the early ’80s with her skyscraper beehive hairdo, bizarre sense of fashion and fully choreographed 12-piece band, The Wilsations! Mari’s live shows were spoken about as an event, and now she’s back in the U.S.

Mari Wilson offers an intimate show accompanied by piano and guitar. Performing songs from all of her albums, including early hits such as, “Cry Me A River” and “Just What I Always Wanted,” and her unusual choice of covers (including the show-stopping “Wild Horses” and the sublime “Be My Baby.”) Also included is a sneak preview from her new one-woman musical, “The Love Thing,” debuting for five nights at The Leicester Square Theatre, London in November. Retro-pop, jazz, soul and irony add to this Mari’s unique style of glamour and storytelling and you’re in for a night to remember.
