Heeeeeeeeere's Gottfried:
sorry for the delay here, Kurt, but wow, Gottfried is excellently portrayed. :thumbs: The camaraderie with Faustus which turns to rage later at the betrayal, everything is wonderfully acted out. And no missed lines, super ! Can be marked PL ok straight away.

Careful with the spaces in between quotes though. Sometimes when there are stage directions inside your speech you forget to leave more silence. No need to redo it though, it will be ok like this, but this is as a reminder for future plays ;)

Thanks, and have a nice weekend

Hi Todd,
I am finished with Act II (Bess). It was 49 seconds.

Please let me know if anything has to be changed.

Here is the main act for Martha, and I had so much fun with her. My favourite sentence was "Where is the money ?" :lol: I hope I put all her greediness into that part.

Also she is not averse to flirting with the devil, so you might like (or dread) that part, Todd. :mrgreen:

thank you, Kathi, Bessie is really nicely portrayed, she seems to be the nicer of the three gossiping girls. 8-)

I can mark Act 3 already PL ok.

Only two small notes for Act 2 to add:

> for the voice credit, please always check the Magic Window for the correct role name, in this case, she is called "Bessie", not "Bess". Sometimes there is also a description following (not in this case though), so the MW is the safest place to check and get it all complete

> at 0:16: (p. 165) "Soft—she's here!" – you missed the first word (or possibly cut it out by mistake)

One general comment still, no need to change it this time, but please, for future plays, could you leave more silent space in between your quotes ? At least 2 or 3 seconds. It will make it easier for our editor to cut and paste the different sections into a masterfile. Thank you

Sonia

Oh, sorry for the cut off word. I just listened to it and I thought the word (soft) was a stage direction. lol, I didnt realize I was supposed to say that word. That is why I said "she's here" (softly). I will look out for that next time.


Thanks for the critique.

and Todd, here is a repentant Martha, who shows that she does have a heart after all, at least for Gretchen, though not for her husband.

I tried to make him sound easily distinguishable from Dominic.

Martha is perfect. I found her very sympathetic. Guess she didn't have me for a brother or husband in this play....

Thanks, Todd
