quite fitting, seeing you are a king in the end....It was quite a boisterous performance through and through. My compliments that you could keep up this raised voice throughout the 3 acts. I especially enjoyed the puppet show where you take over the role of narrator in a way.adrianstephens wrote: ↑November 2nd, 2020, 12:20 pmhttps://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/authorsfarce_luckless_1_128kb.mp3 14:30
I was going for a "Brian Blessed" performance.
I have a few small adjustments to note:
> at 8:13: (p. 14) "friend to adversity" - actually you don't have to repeat the word "friend" here. This is a quirk of old scripts that the first word of the next page is announced at the bottom of the previous page (may be optional, however, as it doesn't hurt to repeat it)
> at 11:33: (p. 19) between ""kick him down stairs" and "if you dislike it", please leave more silence, as it's two separate quotes
> at 2:22: (p. 24) missed lines: "There ends act the first, and such an act, as I believe never was on this stage yet."
> at about 5:55: (p. 49) apparently you should also read the Master lines, so you missed those here: "Why Madame Nonsense, .... [till] "Don Tragedio will make noise again"
> at about 6:21: (p. 50) some more "Master" lines: "She might have heard you.... [till] "than Apollo"
> at 6:53: (p. 53) "his left hand is the fiddle" - you say "on the fiddle", but it seems he is only pretending to have a fiddle
> at about 7:10: (p. 54) more Master lines: "Gentlemen, observe how the doctor sings in his tub. Here are no wires; all alive, alive, ho !"
> at 8:36: (p. 62) "hark ye, Mr Constable" - you say "harkeye", but I think he meant "hark, you" (in a "ye olde englisshe" way of course)
> at about 8:53: (p. 64) Master lines: "Then strike up." (I hope I found them all now)
> at about 12:38: (p. 67) missed OMNES line: "How !" (I guess Luckless is just as surprised as anybody else that Mrs Moneywood is a Queen in the end. - I surely was surprised - I would include him in the group exclamation)
> at about 13:22: Todd noted in the MW that you are also to read the "Author" lines in the Epilogue, so there are two pages worth of speeches waiting for you yet
missed 8 quotes in total: starting with "fie, gentlemen" (page 2 of the epilogue) and ending with "I know her not" (page 3 of the epilogue)
thanks, brilliant performance !
