oh, Larry, you are quite the heart-throb here
that scene where you woo fake Donna Lucia with the floweret speech is simply adorable. I was so mushing here while listening. The speech is completely wasted on Tomas
(the thought of you two having this speech on stage is quite surrealistic
) Well at least later on you show your romantic side to the right Donna Lucia as well. I can fully understand why she is falling for the guy. Wonderfully played out
You did miss some lines though. The text is really a mess, so it's not your fault at all:
> at about 4:10
: missing line: (Aside.) What is he stopping here for?
(Aloud.) Have a cigarette?
> at about 5:51
: here is a lengthy part, not specifically named for Chesney, but in the context, it must be him saying these lines:
LORD FANCOURT, with long strides, steals quickly across to L.U.E., and is nearly off as SIR FRANCIS says: It's so good of you to come. (Turns.) (LORD FANCOURT, seeing SIR FRANCIS turn, stops L.U.E., his attempt to bolt is frustrated.)
(Sees LORD FANCOURT at L.U.E.) Won't you sit down? (LORD FANCOURT Sits L. of C. table.)
(Aside.) By jove, got her at last! Now for the plunge! I'll begin with a compliment. (Looks at LORD FANCOURT, then away again.) I wonder what's her real age? However, a woman's never too old for a compliment, so here goes! (Coming to table--clears throat.)
(LORD FANCOURT clears throat too.)
(Aloud.) Donna Lucia, you'll pardon the rude metaphor of an old campaigner, I'm sure, but to meet you to-day for the first time, as I have done, is to me like a lonely traveller coming across some--er bright little floweret--(Their eyes meet. Indicating L.) by the wayside.
> at 10:42
: “a young fellow named Wyke
ham.” you say “Wicken
ham” but I reply “Wykeham” (beginning sounding like “why
”) it will sound a bit strange if I reply with a different pronunciation. But that might be optional
> at about 10:52
: missing sentence: "Who is entertaining some ladies--two young ladies
(DONNA LUCIA smiles at ELA)--and his aunt.
> at 11:20
” – from the context, I think that is Donna Lucia saying this, it can be cut out
> oh something I almost forgot, the volume is only at 83 dB
. Can be adjusted later on though...
> and I suppose you want to add the voice credit
to the first act. That one is missing still.
thank you for this wonderful performance, Larry.
