Oops, sorry. It was almost four in the morning when I posted that... :9:

thanks TJ, and I think you sound husky enough. I really love the voice you're doing for Lewson. :9: Also his inner rage when he speaks about laying open Stukeley's schemes, that part was very nicely acted out. :thumbs:

Sonia
Thanks, Sonia!

wonderful Act 2 :clap: totally PL ok as well. I love the central scene with Stukeley and Beverley. It's like satan prying on a poor lost lamb.

Everybody in here plays their respective roles so credibly. Well done, Team ! :9:

Here's Lewson Act 3:

awww, Lewson was so sensitive and sad in this scene. :9: Well done, TJ. :clap: You really give him a great character. I sincerely hope that your voice will not be damaged by your pressing it so deep. :help: It sounds great though ! (maybe a sore throat has helped along :mrgreen: )

No errors: PL ok. Thank you !

Tomas, that means Act 3 is ready to edit !

TJ, can I just say that, for the next 48 hours at least, all the guys in the DR troupe will be addressing you as, "Yes, Boss".

:lol: strangely enough, her character in the play is not really "bossy", but I agree, she would have made a blast as one of the "bad guys" too. We need to keep that in mind for another play. ;)

lol! ha! Wait till I start making threats in the next act: "By heaven, he dies that interrupts us. (Shutting the door.)" :evil:
Everybody keeps talking about Lewson's temper (Mrs. Beverly, Charlotte, and Lewson himself) -- I hope I've been able to do that temper justice... It's hard for a refined lady... such as myself... to show emotions without the voice going higher.... :wink:

...but yes, I would love to play a villain. I could be a gangster with this voice. :D

Thanks, Sonia! Actually when I recorded those scenes before the holidays, I found I could go lower and lower as my vocal chords got warmed up. But yesterday when I was trying to make corrections (Who puts a "the" in this sentence: "I dread the losing you."?), I found that I could not get down that deep. I had to sing my way down. So I my recording has me singing scales G-F-D-C I dread the losing you. The recordings are hilarious!

I had some lines in that last act that I believe every new Librivox user should be required to do without popping their "p's" and "b's": "I have pressed for the performance of this promise; but private cares, a brother's..." and "This sweet profusion of kind words pains while it pleases..." :D

:shock: indeed ! it would make a break in the Peter Piper routine LOL

And as for you playing the gangster...it's noted. I'll let you know as soon as I detect a suitable role somewhere :mrgreen:

In the meantime, you could always practice the line: "I don't know how youse done it, BUT I KNOW YOUSE DONE IT!"

Now you're on the trolley, Chris! You really know your onions. You slay me! Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go see a man about a dog.

Before going to bed, I polished up Act 3 so that it's now ready for PL. :mrgreen:

P.S. Sonia: There's one stage direction that is conspicuously missing, and you'll know which one when you come across it. I think Rob forgot to record it (or accidentally deleted it when editing). Fortunately, its absence does not matter; Linda's line conveys enough of its meaning, and I left a bit of a pause to make it more obvious she's listening for voices.
