Here is Joslyn, at last:
yay excellent, thank you so much, Tomas. Joslyn is quite forceful and angry throughout the play, especially with the Chevalier. I like it that you didn't play him too love-smitten to be made a fool of. His hands are tied but he is still enraged enough to give his piece of mind. :thumbs: Well done !

Acts 1 and 3 are already PL ok.

That means, Act 1 can get finalized apart from one missing voice credit. :9:

For Act 2 I found a few missed lines though:

> at about 3:30: (p. 36 bottom) "How do you do, Mr. Mable ? Here's your old travelling companion, Lord Leadenhall."
> at about 9:07: (p. 56 middle) "Bingle, Bingle, are you there?"
> at about 9:17: (p. 57 top) "I'm so sorry that I'm obliged to go out. Will you ask my mother not to wait luncheon for me ? My hat and my coat !"

thank you, and now we are only waiting for your mother...the dear old lady is fashionably late :lol:

Oops! Should've noticed those lines. :oops: They've been added and the amended file is ready to spot PL.

My parts will be uploaded soon. :D
(I'm editing in corrections now. I don't know how I managed at least 7 different pronunciations of "chevalier"... :lol: ).

But how do you decide which one is correct?

Thanks, Todd

I went with Rob‘s version (I hope), the Chevalier himself (with the emphasis on the middle syllable). My tendency was to put the emphasis on the last syllable. I actually downloaded his voice credit into my file and spoke it with him. That‘s how enamored I am by the chevalier.

Oh, oh. Sounds like we have a potential stalker situation here...

Here is Lady Hammersmith, Act 2:

https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/rocket_ladyhammersmith_2_128kb.mp3

At about 12:00 I added a sob for "sinks on ottoman with a sob" in case you care to use it.

Thanks for your patience,
TJ

extra sobs are always welcome :) I see you also faint in style :mrgreen: And wow this was a huge part :shock: But excellently done. The poor woman is totally smitten by the chevalier :lol: you convey this starry-eyed-ness very accurately. Loved the whole performance.

I'll mark it PL ok, only there is one optional note:

> at 1:27: (p. 30) "Joslyn, if I die tomorrow..." you have two versions of "Joslyn" here: is there one you prefer or can Todd choose ? Otherwise you need to cut one out

Thanks, that means Acts 1 and 2 can already get assembled 8-)

Missing a Lady Hammersmith line from act 2, p41, buried in stage directions: "And tell me - when do you expect the dear Chevalier?"

Separate small file, please.

Thanks, Todd
