Very Very Mary 

Wednesday, Dec 12 2007
We saw Mary Wilson, the normal Supreme, last time she was here. She's not the mean diva, she's not the cheated one and she's not the replacement: She's the original, and what a lady. She delivered all the soignée celebrity, all the gown-clad class, and most importantly, all the mad talent we could have wanted. Consider the woman who not only gave us one-third of the music and glamour of the Supremes, but also someone whose tell-nearly-all book Dreamgirl: My Life as a Supreme offers up tasteful details about relationships with Steve McQueen and, fan yourself, Tom Jones. At "Mary Wilson: Up Close … Encore!" see the world famous soul and R&B chanteuse in a gorgeous cabaret setting, performing international smash hit after international smash hit.

The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
