Act 1 is ready for Final PL.

It is always such a pleasure to get to hear all of you together. When I initially assemble the acts, I just hear the first or last couple words of each line to know I have them in the right place. But now I get to hear everything and: Wow! You have all really taken on the characters here and it is a joy to hear you all!

On to Act 2.

Thanks, Todd

wow yes I totally agree, this is a fine romp of a comedy and everybody was won-der-ful in their roles. :9: :thumbs: It was a treat listening to the 4 acts in one row.

I'll mark Acts 2, 3 and 4 already PL ok.

I have only one suggestion for Act 1:

> at 4:05: after "enter Courtall singing": could you try to put Courtall's singing line"ladiladila" (currently at 4:23-4:28) here and let Saville cut into it with "Ha Courtall !" Because I think that after Saville says so much already to Courtall, it is not logical that Courtall is still singing when he starts his first sentence at 4:29 :hmm:

The rest is perfect

Thank you, for yet another great editing !

enjoy I did :) What a cool and turbulent finale. Another brilliant performance and editing. :clap:

I would only suggest one correction at this spot:

> at 4:55: maybe in this speech, we should put the persons spoken to at the beginning of each sentence instead of after it, otherwise it's a bit confusing who should do what:

"Villers, to Letty: You go and put off your conquering dress, and get all your awkward airs ready—
to Hardy: And you practise a few groans —
to Mrs Racket: And you—if possible—an air of gravity.
I'll answer for the plot."

the rest, perfect as always

yes I know, I hope it wasn't too tricky to find one. :?

In any case, it's clearer now and perfectly PL ok :)

Off to the catalogue to unleash upon an unsuspecting world-wide audience :mrgreen:

Thank you all !!!
