Okay, I'm ready to take on 'Husband.' I just don't know where to start the narration. I guess I'll do everything and let the editor decide if the commentary about stage directions and costumes is desired.
E agora, José?

before you do too much, maybe wait a bit longer to let Devorah reply. She is the BC for that project, so she may have an idea what she wants to include

I'd say skip the preface and costumes and just start in on page 9 with the opening of the act. The preface is delightful, but gives away too much of the plot. As I recall, I believe everyone submitted their voice credit correctly, so no need to read the list of characters either.

So all in all, you'll give the LibriVox disclaimer, read the title of the play, and then something like "Cast of characters," followed by a pause so that I can insert everyone here. Don't forget to include your voice credit. Then start in with the play proper. :)

Let me know of any changes I should make - don't just make a change in a copy, cuz I need to preserve the HTML that I don't understand.
here are a few corrections you may want to consider:
THE COMEDIAN: <a href="https://librivox.org/reader/12732">Jim Gallagher</a><br>
THE VILLAIN: <a href="https://librivox.org/reader/12874">Aaron White</a><br>
THE TRAGEDIAN: <a href="https://librivox.org/reader/10789">Tomas Peter</a><br>
THE OLD MAN: <a href="https://librivox.org/reader/11535">Nemo</a><br>
THE HEROINE: <a href="https://librivox.org/reader/4174">Availle</a><br>
THE INGENUE: <a href="https://librivox.org/reader/13140">Jenn Broda</a><br>
THE OLD WOMAN: <a href="https://librivox.org/reader/13127">Betsy Walker</a><br>
THE STRANGER: <a href="https://librivox.org/reader/13072">Campbell Schelp</a><br>
is there a reason why you write all the characters in capital letters ? :hmm: it's the only play where you do that
Narrator/Stage Directions: <a href="https://librivox.org/reader/8425">Larry Wilson</a><br>
maybe you want to stay consistent and only write "Stage directions" like in the other plays
Narrator: <a href="https://librivox.org/reader/6065">David Olson</a><br>
same here
Francois (a French cook): <a href="https://librivox.org/reader/12823">Pauline Latournerie</a><br>
could you maybe write François with a cédille (ç), I shudder when I see the French name written this way ;)

That's my two-cents worth.

Okay, I'm at a halt. Do you want me to read all the r.d.'s and whatnot? Personally I can't believe it would be of much interest to a casual listener, but I wanted to ask.
E agora, José?

Pardon my ignorance, but what are r.d.s?

You're not ignorant, I am!

The text includes this code for locations. r.d = right down stage. Etc. Are they desired?

Go ahead and record them. If I feel it's too much, I can always cut it.

Sorry, one more question. Do you want the code or the full item? I assume the full item?

I ask because there are well over seventy of these.

Yes, read it out, not just the abbreviation. (Center, not just c.)

Thompson! Tomkins! Figgins! Spriggins!

I hope this is all that you wanted and that it is adequate to your needs. Please let me know otherwise. The material after 28:24 is probably unneeded.

I tried to leave ample room in between directions and explanatory remarks.

Thank you - I made all the changes you suggest to the cast list in the Project Screen.

How, by the way, do you make a cedille? I copied it from your posting into the project screen - which looks to have worked - but I don't know how else I could have done it.

Thanks, Todd
