I have just reopened (and orphaned) the role of David, patriarch of the Bliss family. A fairly quick turnaround would be appreciated, as the other roles are all PL OK.

Thanks,
Wendy

How do you feel about having the same reader perform more than one character? I imagine it's not ideal, especially with the audio being the only way to experience this version of the production. Perhaps someone new who was interested in joining the project but wasn't able to for whatever reason, will come back to claim David. But I am willing to shift the timber/style of my voice and do it, if nobody else is available quickly.

Thanks. I'm hoping someone new will claim it, though, because I think it might be confusing. I'll keep it in mind, though!

David Bliss recorded - just before the power saws of nearby construction started their morning snarl. Hopefully I won't have to record many corrections.

Thanks, Todd

Excellent job! It will be a delight putting our fight together in Act 2. :)

Thanks so much for both your good work and your speed.

All acts PL OK.

Hello Wendy,
A few of my projects are almost completed, so I'd be willing to DPL on this project if you still need someone. Just let me know--and pass along any particular notes that might help while I listen.

Thanks,
Lora
Finally, I have Act 1 ready for PL. BTW, this is my first time as BC, so don't hesitate to let me know if I did something wrong; I want to learn. :) The other two acts should be coming later this week (I hope).

Wendy,
Act 1 sounds fine; the stage directions flow along with the other lines and the pacing is good. There is one line missing from Myra; at 42:33 she should say, "You certainly are." in between Simon's lines.

Thanks--I will get to Act 3 soon.

Thanks! I'm not quite sure how I did that; thanks for catching it!
