and last but not least, the final Act. Again, all well read, but the same problem with some missing character names here. I enumerate them all for easy reference :)

> at 1:16: “Eraste (aside)” – missing “Eraste
> at 1:48: “Eraste (aside)” – missing “Eraste
> at 2:10: “Damis (aside)” – missing “Damis
> at 2:14: “Eraste (aside)” – missing “Eraste
> at 2:19: “Damis (to L’Epine)” – missing “Damis
> at 2:23: “La Rivière (to his companions)” – missing “La Rivière
> at 2:27: “Damis (to L’Epine)” – missing “Damis
> at 4:05: “End of The Bores by Molière” – please also add “by Molière” one final time ;)

thank you, April :) It's great that the stage directions have been read so early in the play, that way Todd can start assembling the pieces as they come in. :9:

Will do. Sorry about not including the character names with those one-word ones. since they're about "how" it's said, more than what they're doing, it felt more like a disposable adverbial direction. Will fix these in the next few days.

I have a few notes though:

> at 6:54: "it was necessary to separate the entrées of this ballet" – you say “to separate
this of the
ballet”, where we don't really know what "this" means :hmm:

> in the dramatis personae, you forgot to say “read by” each time. I guess every reader will read his role, but just in case one of them will go AWOL without a proper credit, we need the narrator to say this. I would be inclined to let you skip this and wait until the case presents itself, but let's see what Todd thinks about this before you do any changes.

Sonia
I think for the 6:54 one, when I copied it from Gutenberg to Word (to color code and edit out the parts without me), I somehow lost those words, and I know I puzzled over the edit, trying to figure out what I or the translator or Molliere meant.

For "Read By", I'd love if anyone here can do a good Ben Stein imitation (from Ferris Beuller, "anyone? anyone?") and plug that in for each one. :lol:

Orante is PL OK. Captures the part perfectly.

Thanks, Todd

Caritides Act 3

*yawn* this is one of the big-prize winners in boredom :mrgreen: excellently portrayed, Larry. I can feel Tomas' exasperation when he tries to get rid of you LOL

no errors, but could you maybe try to insert a longer pause here:

> at 0:43: between “Excuse the boldness which inspires me, if…” and “As the rank, wit, and generosity which every one extols in you…” They are two separate quotes, but you read them as one continuing sentence. Todd needs a bit more space, to make his job easier.

thank you, other than that, all is fine

La Montagne is in the MW for PL. What an annoying twit!

indeed :lol: usually the servants in Molière are the wits that help their master along, but this one is really annoying. The first scene was reminding me of Rowan Atkinson's wonderful performance in Love Actually. Now he would be a worthy bore for this play. In case you don't know the movie, here is the short 2 minute scene, where Alan Rickman is driven to exasperation by Atkinson (watch it, it's worth it):

I especially love your breathless performance in Act 2 :thumbs: I was starting to breathe faster while listening to it, probably my mirror neurons kicking in :lol:

everything perfect and PL ok. Another bore in the box. :mrgreen: Who's next ?
