excellent performance as coquette, Devorah :thumbs: I especially love the laughs in the final act where she is so warmly flirting with Brisk. You will be in stark contrast with hubby Froth, but I think that will sound brilliant together, it's what comedy is all about.

Now I solved the mystery of the file confusion. The acts are all correctly named, but Todd forgot to add a section for Act 3, which I did now. Also you merged the speeches of Acts 4 and 5 together into Act 4. (you should have taken that nap ;) )

Acts 2 and 3 are already PL ok.

PL notes for Acts 4 and 5:

> from 2:03 till the end: "my dear, Mr Brisk and I.... ": these lines belong into Act 5, could you cut them here and do a new file please ? Also reupload the shortened file for Act 4 please, it will make matters easier.

> at about 3:02: missed ALL line: "What's the matter ?"

Thanks

Sonia

What would we do without Sonia?
Headless chickens running aimlessly around is the only image that comes to my mind.

Thanks, Todd

Ohh, there was a whole 'nother act, was there? :mrgreen:
:mrgreen: there was indeed.

Now both are PL ok. Thanks, Devorah.

Here's Cynthia for Acts 4 and 5, and the corrected Act 2!
thank you, super, Lydia. Cynthia is really the fresh air in the play (although a bit mischievous as well :lol: ) nicely played

Acts 2 and 5 are straight PL ok. Though the volume in the added song is quite low, but Todd will adjust volumes anyway. I'll make a note.

Just a very small snip to make in Act 4:

> at 0:36: stumble and repeat "we... we hunt in couples" – the first we can be cut

there is a strange grumbling undertone in your entire recording, I wonder what background noise that was. :hmm: Did you record in a different environment this time ? I didn't notice it last time.

Here's Cynthia's corrected act 4!

I'm not sure what the background sound is. I did record in a different room this time, though.

thank you, PL ok now. Maybe it was a plane passing overhead, but it went on for quite some time :hmm:
