I completely agree and nobody could blame me for being panicky. As the dowager would say: I have a serious motive for being panicky
Act 2 is simply wonderful
TJ as the dowager is so brilliantly cast ! And Sir Julian is soooo desperate when she heaps motive over motive on top of him. I love the way you say “Another” (=family matter) for the third time or so LOL The dialogue between you two is really entertaining at the beginning.
Oh and I love the merged "Awwww" when we gather around the baby LOL Then comes a lighter moment with Imogen first dealing with a super awkward Colin and then with Valentine. Leanne and Kurt have quite a good chemistry here.
And then: WHAM enter Gaylustre and Lebanon to ruin Kitty's day - but not the play ! quite the contrary - seriously: finding myself in the middle of these siblings from hell made me cringe. I quite forgot how slimy Lebanon was and how snake-like Gaylustre.
But it's a brilliant ending to the act and prepares for more doom in Act 3. Looking forward to this.
The act is flawless in my opinion.
Excellent cutting, Todd. I think I may only suggest one tiny thing here (sorry, can't help it

: “The question, of course, is whether Imogen—h’m!” – “Whether Imogen can return the affection” – “Which Sir Colin honours her by entertaining” – here Lord and Lady Twombley are finishing each other’s sentence, it would sound better if the pause in-between was shorter
I don't know how to break this to ye'all, but I have to be out of town for a long weekend and I won't get Acts 3 and 4 done first. So just try to be patient - go record something more until I return.
well, we will school ourselves in patience and quietly wait for you return. It will only enhance our expectation and enjoyment of the finale.
You have fun on your weekend and come back safely ! I'll keep an eye on the projects !
