Is There Life On Mars?

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…
