Thank you.

Hello Todd,

Here they are.

I was unsure about the (voices within. ...) sections. I have read them, but I also realise this might be intended for other
voices. If you want me to remove them, I will.

Thank you. The (Voices within) should stay in for now - I think they are all crowd murmurs and one more voice there could be good depending on what other voices sound like mixed together. Won't know until I edit.

Thanks, Todd

"After the dazzle of day is gone,
Only the dark, dark night shows to my eyes the stars;
After the clangor of organ majestic, or chorus, or perfect band,
Silent, athwart my soul, moves the symphony true."
Walt Whitman

Fife Act 1 is spot check PL OK. Volume is OK now, thanks for fixing it!

PL OK: Stage Directions, Acts 1-4; Fife, Acts 3-4; Astolfo, Acts 1, 2, 4; Captain, Acts 1, 3, 4.

Todd, a couple of questions for you: Adrian (Stage Directions) also read what the "Voices Within" said during Act 2. He did not read the lines for the "Voices Within" in other acts (i.e., he said the words "Voices Within," but did not read what they were saying). I figured this is not a problem, but let me know if you feel otherwise. Also, at the end of Act 4, he simply said "End of Act 4." Does he also need to say "End of Life is a Dream by Pedro Calderón de la Barca"?

Many thank you's for all the PL. Wonderful and much appreciated.

The "Voices Within" stuff does not, as you suspected, matter.

But we do need "End of Life is a Dream by Pedro Calderón de la Barca. Translated by Edward FitzGerald." at the end of the play in Act 4.

Only two more roles!

Thanks, Todd
