Is there recession in outer space? Well the National Bureau of Economic Research finally agreed with most Americans today, declaring that the nation has been in a recession since last December. A year late in acknowledgment, but thanks for the heads up.
On a lighter note, I am gearing up for my first Broadway audition tomorrow morning: Mamma Mia! This was the second musical I ever saw, and it blew me away after being obsessed with ABBA for a number of my pre-teen years. I am thrilled to meet up with two friends from my musical improv class as we, the three mighty non-equity actors, attempt to be seen in a see of headshots. In an attempt to fill the “contemporary pop song” requested for the audition, I have finally decided to go with David Bowie’s “Life on Mars” as my audition piece. Of course, they will only ask for about 30 seconds of music, but I am looking forward to singing 16 bars of an obscure 70’s classic. Now I just have to pick out an appropriate outfit…

I hope and am confident in your success. Mamma Mia is so fun. You could really work off any fustrations there. Good luck. Grams
