I will fix the pause tonight.

I too admire everyone's ability to make it so well through this difficult to read scanned text - you will be glad to know that the next Jonson comes from Gutenberg.org.

Thanks, Todd
Fixed, ready for spot PL.

Thanks, Todd

wonderful job, Sawa :9: I'm so glad you chose to re-read the prologue. You are really shining in this performance. It gives the narrator a whole new level of importance. And I loved your dramatic expressiveness throughout the prologue, ending in this really great ominous tone of voice with “the devil is in it”. :thumbs:

The rest of the stage directions are also top-notch and nothing missing. Totally PL ok. Thank you so much !

Now Todd can work his magic...

Act 1 ready for final PL. This play makes so much more sense when I can listen to you all!

indeed it sounds so great 8-) :9: everybody is at their best here it seems to me. And now to hear the whole story in a linear timeline, I also got the meaning much more. The play doesn't even sound so difficult anymore :lol:

Excellent editing too, Todd. For once, I won't have any complaints :mrgreen: and give you my prompt PL ok.

(I can't believe I overlooked so many incomplete voice-credits though :oops: )

Orphaning the stage directions for the last two acts.

Quick turnaround would be nice - I have all the characters assembled just waiting for the rather simple sparse stage directions to be added. I'd like to get this in the catalog before I shut down for much of June into July...

Thanks, Todd

I would like to help get this finished but, as my character (Satan) appears in act 5, you may prefer a different voice.

I am afraid so - the stage directions should be read by someone not otherwise in the play. At least not in Acts 4 and 5.
