Thank you.

No need to use section numbers in plays - we move the sections around in the MW all the time so their numbers change.

Thanks, Todd
Thanks, Todd. Force of habit!

Take care,

Greg

thank you for the fast turn-around, Greg. And L'Intimé is exactly like I thought he would be. The prototype of the witty servant. You played him excellently. I especially liked the scene where you speak very fast :lol: well done and without stumbling (lots of practice before recording ?)

I'll mark 2 and 3 already PL ok.

Just a small redo for the voice credit in Act 1 please:

> at 0:01: please always read the full description that you can see in the MW, here: "L'Intimé, a clerk, read by..."

thanks

Thank you for the kind comments, Sonia. I shall make the correcrion this weekend.

In response to your question, I read the section only once before recording. I find that over practicing complicated pieces make recording more difficult for me.

Take care,

Greg

Act 3 Stage directions completed.
https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/litigants_stagedirections_3_128kb.mp3
thank you, Chris, the file we were all waiting for 8-)

Excellent job again nothing missing. Only one cut:

> from 1:08-1:18: (p. 237) you don't need to include the footnotes, can be cut

But in case you cannot do it right away and Todd wants to assemble already, I guess he could just ignore that part. Everything he needs is in there. In fact that's also true for Act 2, where there were only cuts which can be ignored. As for Act 1, you don't have to say the voice credits now as I think that all the readers said their complete credits. So all that is left to add is in Act 1: at 4:16: (p. 206): "Petit-Jean, to the Countess" – we need to include the name of the character, as the directions come at the beginning of the speech.

Todd: if you want you can finish up Acts 2 and 3 if you can work around the cuts. Let us know, in that case, Chris does not have to reupload.

Actually looks like I have everything I need now for all acts except a voice credit for the stage directions from Chris.

Everything assembled except for stage direction voice credit (in Act 1).

Must groom before PL.

The missing piece...

Cheers,
Chris

P.S. Please let me know if you ever do "The Winter's Tale". I'd kinda like to read that stage direction in Act 3 that says "[Exit, pursued by a bear]".

Thank you. I had to flee a bear in one of the Molieres as well....

Everything is ready for final PL. I think ye'all sound great. Now back to being tragic as Racine really intended in his plays!

Thanks, Todd

totally agree, after having listened to the entire play ! :9: Everybody is perfect in their characters. Some scenes are simply hilarious (I laughed a lot in the scene with the countess and Chicaneau, if I may say so myself :oops: ). The capon judging scene was also brilliant, especially Greg's performance as lawyer. I noticed you cut out all the voice-descriptions there and well done, because he conveyed the nuances excellently each time. :thumbs:

You were all great ! :clap:

Acts 2 and 3 perfectly assembled and PL ok already.

One small name missing in Act 1:

> at 12:47: (p. 195) "Leander, pointing to Isabelle's dwelling" – we need to include the name here as it's at the beginning of the speech

Thank you, Todd, yet another great play finished.
