Here is Act 3 for Porgy:

https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/porgy_porgy_3.mp3

Please note: on page 143 a line headed SEVERAL MEN does not say which men are the SEVERAL MEN. Three additional lines following are headed THE MEN, which I took to mean the same SEVERAL MEN. I did NOT record these lines as Porgy. For several pages Porgy just sits at his spot on stage without saying anything before these few lines so I made the decision that he was not intended to be one of the SEVERAL MEN. If you want me to record these lines as Porgy I will.

Take care,

Greg

Thank you. I think you are probably right about Porgy listening, not talking at that point.

Thanks, Todd

Here is Act 4 for Porgy:

https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/porgy_porgy_4.mp3

NOTE: In this act the script states on Page 182 that Porgy and Bess are singing. Right after the scripts states that all break into song. In this case since Porgy was singing, albeit silently, I went ahead and recorded the lines that all others sing, despite there being no stage direction that he should. If you feel it should not be included just let me know and I will cut the lines out.

Thank you.

I may use the sung lines, so don't cut them.

Again, well done! I do have just one PL note

@ about 2:44, there is a missing line (top of page 196) "Here Scipio! Here Porgy from jail. Open de gate an' don't make no noise."

Great work, Greg! :D
