I'll do my best with pronouncing the characters' names, but I'm always open to correction. (I had some French, Latin, and Greek ages ago in school, so I can normally make reasonable guesses.)
As part of Act 1 please read In the Introductory Notice from "Molière dedicated The Bores to... " through "... humble servant, THE TRANSLATOR." - I think this is interesting. Then, yes, please read the Preface.
In the Dramatis Persone, please read the entire character description. If readers do what they are supposed to do and read the same thing in their vice credit, then I will use their voices - but I have yet to do a play where all of them do do it and then I will use your voice as part of their credit. And read your own credit "Stage Directions read by..."
Throughout the play, do not read any of the footnotes. Interesting as they are, they break up the flow of the play too much.
Where a stage direction follows a character name such as "LA M. (Letting the hat fall).", please read the character name as well.
Note: Kitty knows how to pronounce all these names and is The Law!
