Well, I uploaded the corrected version of Ayesha, Act 2, several times, but it seems to still be the old version... :shock:

Amurath Act V, adorable performance, just one short phrase missing, would go around 0:26 in the recording "to myself gave liberty; And flew to thee through darkness – night"
Thanks, Rapunzelina! I'll pass your compliment on to Jasmin.

Here's Amurath, Act 5, including the missing phrase:

I want to add my compliments as well. The flowery language in the play and range of emotions required by this character are fairly demanding -- even for a seasoned performer. Jasmin did wonderful job of making our Amurath come alive! :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Thank you both for such wonderful compliments for Jasmin -- she was really proud when I read her your comments. This was by far the most challenging role Jasmin has played (because of the language and the sentence structure) -- we have a blooper reel ten times longer than the script (mostly with Jasmin laughing and asking: "who talks that way?"!!! :lol: She also thought I was a sad excuse for a villain, making it so easy for her to escape, and she kept telling me so! :lol: ).

All's well that ends well, here's Ayesha, Act 5:

Act 4 is my longest part (and still needs editing) -- not a dry eye in the house when Ayesha tells her tragic backstory... :(

She has every right to be proud! :D

I think you're doing a great job as villain, though. I just finished working on Act II and it's sounding great! Aeysha starts out in this act as a stereotypical villain of melodrama, but we quickly start getting hints at the tortured and conflicted soul behind her sneer! Great work!

Ayesha Act 5 is PL OK. I dread Act 4, it was hard to keep a dry eye in this one. I'll get the box of tissues ready.

Thank you. I have added the cast list to the MW database.

(It goes at the end of the MW copy of the summary - don't know if you have access to that.)

Thanks, Todd

I don't think I do -- I don't see a copy of the summary on my Project page, if that's where it's supposed to be. I see a button that says "Project Screen" but I can't access anything beyond it.
