Apologies for taking so long to get this going, but I had the dreaded bronchitis for several weeks and sounded a bit like a frog. Here's Richmore, Act 1:
Kurt ! I'm so glad you're better. I was already wondering where you ended up. Scenarios of gila-monster attacks in a canyon were on my mind. :help: I'm glad it was "only" bronchitis.

Will PL soon !

ooooohhh he is SO despicable :evil: and you play him SO well. :thumbs: I can imagine both your scenes, one with Tomas and one with me, and they will be great when assembled. I simply knew your voice would be perfect for that character.

Nothing missing, no textual errors, but I would like to make one suggestion, if I may (*puts on director's cap*):

> at 6:30 (p. 23): "And I love Mr Richmore" - this sentence would sound more appropiate if you intonated differently. Mandrake told Richmore "SHE (Clelia) loved Mr Richmore etc..." and to this he quips: "And I (strong emphasis on I) love Mr Richmore, and that is the reason I forgot MINE." It's one of those sentences that show how much of a bastard that Richmore is. :lol:

Looking forward to the other acts :9:

Thanks for the constructive feedback, I really appreciate it. I *think* this version fits the context better, let me know if it still needs work:

nope, this is excellent, good job ! Act 1 PL ok now.
Here's the other 3 acts for PL:
great job again. I loved your lechering after Aurelia :lol: The eagerness in your voice when you say "Tonight !" is barely top-able. Oh and I had to look up rhodomontadoes, a word I was not familiar with yet. You got it out without twisting your tongue :thumbs: In the end he seems to mend his ways...I wonder how credible that would be in real life :hmm:

Anyway, Acts 2 and 5 are PL ok.

Only one tiny textual error in Act 4:

> at 3:00: (p. 90 bottom) "the injurious blow has set on fire my pride" - you say "my fire"

Great job, Kurt. Thanks for taking this on.

I'm going to need a tad bit more time for Aurelia. I finished recording Acts 2-4 and almost finished editing Act 2. But after hearing Kurt's fantastically despicable portrayal of Richmore, methinks I was not bitter/biting enough when I was talking about and to him in Acts 2 & 3. I may have to rerecord a line or two... :evil: But I shouldn't keep you waiting too much longer...

Thanks, as always, for your patience. :D

well since we aren't even fully claimed yet, I think we can wait a bit more time for you to hone and sharpen your disgust for Richmore even a little more. :mrgreen: Looking forward to your performance. This is a different thing from Lewson ;) I wonder what Lewson would have done with Richmore. :lol:

Good catch! I think I fixed it, let me know if there's still an issue.

:lol: this reminds me of the movie Despicable Me :mrgreen:

Issue perfectly fixed and all of Richmore is PL ok now. :thumbs: Such a great addition.

Thank you (and see you in another play soon 8-) )

Ha! Aurelia is pretty tough, but clearly not tough enough to save herself from the likes of Richmore (I can just picture how Lewson would say his name, dripping with disgust: "Rich-more, how I loath thee"). Aurelia should have taken some sword fighting lessons from Lewson... :wink:

Thanks for your patience.

Hello, Sonia!

How are you doing? Working hard on your listening in your last holiday week, as far as I know. :D
Here am I with my second recording in the drama section! Hopefully, I will pass the test. :oops:
Can wait for your PL.
Starting the reading of our next project in Portuguese in three, two, one :clap:
