Here are my recordings of Whitmore:
thanks a lot, Greg. Awww Witmore is a dear friend, you play him very well. A bit cheeky too, especially at the beginning when he talks about the women of the town. :mrgreen: I liked the whole performance, well done. A very important role in this play.

Act 2 is straight PL ok, but I found some notes for Acts 1 and 3:

for Act 1:

> at about 5:22: (p. 17) missed line: "Ha, ha, ha. That's true indeed."

> at 6:04: (p. 20) "I am serious, I assure you." – I think you said "furious" if I'm not mistaken :hmm:

for Act 3:

> at about 0:22: (p. 66) missed OMNES line: "Long live Henry I. King of Bantam."

> at about 0:33: (p. 66 & 67) two missed OMNES line: "Huzza !" and "How !"

thank you

Sonia

PL notes for Act 1: NEW TIME STAMPS

> at about 4:09: there are some added roles in the 3rd act and epilogue, you can check the MW which roles you missed. If I found them all it's: Manager / Mr. Seedo, Musician / Director / 2nd Sailor / Messenger / Sir John / 1st Poet / 2nd Poet / 3rd Poet / 4th Poet / Cat

> at 5:45: (p. 13) "Mrs Moneywood, within" – you only say "Money" but I think it's best always say the full name of the character

PL notes for Act 2: NEW TIME STAMPS

> at about 1:44: (p. 34) missed: "Scene IX: Witmore, with a paper, meeting Luckless"

> at about 2:08: (p. 37) missed: "Scene XII: Moneywood, Harriot, Jack"

PL notes for Act 3: NEW TIME STAMPS

> at 0:35: (p. 39) missed: "Air I. Whilst the town's brimfull of folly"

> at about 1:31: (p. 44) missed: "Enter Don Tragedio, Sir Farcical Comick, Dr. Orator, Signior Opera, Monsieur Pantomime and Mrs Novel."

> at 6:18: (p. 63) "Sir John, aside" or "Constable, aside" – not really sure who says this as aside, either Sir John's entire speech or the beginning of Constable's speech up to the dash (I am opting for that one). In any case it should be at the beginning of the speech, and therefore the name needs to be included. You could maybe record both versions, then Todd can decide who says the aside

> at about 5:56: (second page of epilogue) missed: "Enter the Author" and "Enter Cat"

A few added notes for Mrs Novel:

> at about 0:05: (p. 45) Mrs Novel introduces herself by a song here. Seven lines, starting with "Oh ! pity all a maiden..." till "And lost my maiden-head."

> at about 4:36: could you maybe also add to the chorus lines ? (OMNES)
p. 66: "Long live Henry I. King of Bantam." and "Huzza !"
p. 67: "How !"
An amended Mrs. Novel is here:

Here comes Marplay Junior. Quite the conceited prick if you're asking me... :roll:
:lol: yes indeed and you play him quite pompously, very fitting :thumbs: in the end though, he is a poor sot though who would probably have been more agreeable if his own work had gotten recognition. (alas ! no talent !)

Act 1 is already PL ok but I have a small suggestion to improve Act 2:

> at 2:21: (p. 26) "for my writings, you know, have fared but ill hitherto" – you say "fard", which doesn't make sense in context (it should rhyme on "scared", "dared")

the rest was perfect for the spoilt brat :lol:

thank you !
