Thank you both.

Alan - one of the problems with getting yourself typecast is that you start to figure that all roles can be fit into your cast....

Thanks, Todd

Like a French version of Gillingham :lol:
:lol: indeed another doddering old fool. This one is even worse than Gillingham I think. But you played him hilariously :clap: Got me giggling. Thank you, Act 1 is PL ok.

ah I was curious about Chicaneau, because he has such a long dialogue with my Countess. And a brilliant job you're doing, Mike :thumbs: How those two can switch from friends to foes in only one scene is a marvel. Looking forward to hearing this assembled.

PL ok as well. Thank you !

ah well, Leander is a bit of a schemer, but quite ingenious in his plot. :thumbs: Nicely done, Adrian, thank you so much. Perfectly PL ok right away.

I could take care of L'Intime if you like!

Poor overworked and underfed Petit-Jean is going to take a short nap in the MW while he awaits his PL. Or his chicken. Which ever comes first....

Thanks, Todd

hehehe, the typical over-protective father who gets duped by the daughter and her lover :lol: this scene was worthy of Molière. Actually Racine is not bad at this comedy thing, I wonder why he only had one.

Excellent job again, Mike, totally PL ok. :thumbs: Thank you. Now for your finale, you will probably be exasperated at the end of the day. :lol:

are you sure it was the mastiff that ate the capon ? :| I don't really believe this underfed-fairy-tale...

be this as it may, Petit-Jean (or Little John, for the English-speakers) is perfectly acted out. :thumbs: I especially like the harumphing in the prompter's scene. This will be really fun later on assembled. :lol:

PL ok. Thank you ! no go and eat some more... you need to stay strong and healthy for all our future plays.
