We enjoyed Susannah's concert totally. The venue was perfect for a one person presentation w/the four person band backing her. Her involvement w/her audience was enjoyable, although I think that my wife and I were just too far to her right to be...continued

Mars on Life – Live!
By Susannah Mars
Directed By Grant Byington
Susannah Mars returns with the warmth and charm that Artists Rep audiences have come to expect.
This year she explores the expectations of what the holiday home is “supposed to be” — the havoc, the harmony, and the universal challenges the season can mean for each of us.
“Mars on Life- Live! is not as an alternative to typical holiday fare but an addition,” said Susannah Mars. “We will run the gamut of the human experience at the holidays – the stress, the wonder, the celebrations, and the laughter needed to cope with it all…”
Amid a revolving door of special guests, Susannah will sing 26 songs, give gifts galore, dance and even bake. Not really, she will fake-bake with the help of physical theater choreographer Jerry Mouawad of Imago Theatre. Just a few of Susannah’s special guests will include Rebecca Kilgore, Portland Gay Men’s Chorus, Body Vox’s Jamey Hampton and Holcombe Waller.
As always, audience participation will be a big part of the evening’s experience, with the audience receiving gifts and being photographed. This is a chance for audiences to banish their holiday baggage, and embrace Susannah’s, in an unpredictable show that will be different every night!
The band will include local stalwarts of the music scene Bill Wells, Ross Selligman, Bob Shotola and Will Amend performing holiday songs old and new from a variety of composers such as Irving Berlin and Jason Robert Brown.
Susannah Mars has spent the holiday season on stage with Artists Rep since 2006, starring in _Mars on Life: The Holiday Edition _and Holidaze.
