Thank you.

Rad, Todd.
This will be my first attempt at a dramatic recording. I anticipate that it will be a lot of fun. Not to mention that I won't have to edit the finished product, hehe.
I do hope you have fun with this. I enjoy the dramatic works, particularly plays.

While as you note you don't have to edit everything together here, your part with others, please do either leave during recording or cut in long enough gaps (~5 second?) between lines so that I can easily do the manipulations and assemble the completed play.

Also eliminate any stumbles or multiple tries from your part file so it is complete and ready for use. It also helps if you get the overall sound level adjusted right so I won't run into any noise or clipping issues if I have to do adjustments later on. (Since you have already done book sections here at Librivox, you had to do all these things there too.)

Thanks, Todd
No worries. I'll be on top of it. Thanks.

thank you, Mike, a great debut into your LV drama career 8-) I particularly love the outburst when he talks about his wife who is jail :lol: you gave him an interesting character.

there are 5 lines missing though, could you please insert those at the right spot still:

> at about 1:40: (p. 15) missing lines "Dr. Johnson, may I have a word with you ? (etc) ... you will stand for your character."

thanks :)

Of course. Thank you. Sorry about that, I guess the scan-to-text has a harder time with some fonts than others. I'll get right on it.

so just to make sure, you only recorded those missing lines, you did not re-record it all, right ? Only because I just did a Spot PL and didn't listen to the rest once again. Let me know if I have to.

Otherwise, it's not PL ok. This man definitely made a poor choice in his wife :lol:

Thanks, Mike

May I claim Section 8?

By the way, I cannot get access to the text. Can you please help me with this?

Kind regards,

Here's Mrs. Thrale:
ah, you're Mrs Thrale, the one who shocked my dear Fanny so much by marrying this musician Piozzi. How could you ?! :mrgreen: excellently played throughout, Foon, you're playing the perfect countryhouse hostess to perfection. :thumbs:

Acts 2 and 3 already PL ok.

Only one small note for Act 1:

> at 2:31: (p. 29) "of a [with a curtsy] charming woman from Wales - you forgot to leave sufficient space for the insertion of the narrator here. It may be very difficult to accurately cut this sentence, so a re-do of this line may be easier

thanks
