Density back to the usual ~40%
I am curious: what does this mean ? :hmm:
Ratio of speech to silence. Not sure what earthly use this is. But you can't keep an engineer down.

I do have a few PL notes for the other 4 acts still:

for Act 1:

> from 6:07-8:30: the epilogue belongs to the end of the play. Could you cut it here please and insert it at the end of act 5, to have each section in the correct act ?

> at 8:41: could you please read the entire cast list as well, with all the descriptions. Though we ask the readers to give their full voice credits, sometimes they disappear before handing them in, so Todd needs to fall back on the narrator to insert the full credit in, then it's good to have a backup. Please always read: "Sir George Airy. A Gentleman of Four Thousand a Year in Love with Miranda, read by...", "Sir Francis Gripe. Guardian to Miranda and Marplot, Father to Charles, in Love with Miranda, read by..." etc

> at the very end: please include the end disclaimer: "End of Act 1"

for Act 2:

> at about 1:39: please insert: "Enter Sir George"

> at about 1:51: please insert: "Enter Miranda"

> at about 5:48: please insert: "Enter Patch"

> at about 5:53. please insert two lines: "Re-enter sir Jealous Traffick meeting Whisper" and "Seeing Whisper"

for Act 4:

> at about 0:19: missed 11 lines (the entire first scene): "Scene: the outside of Sir Jealous Traffick's house, Patch peeping out of door. Enter Whisper". / "Exit" / "Puts it besides and it falls down" / "Exit" / "Enter Sir Jealous with a letter in his hand" / "takes up the letter Patch dropped" / "opens it" / "exit" / "enter butler" / "exit" / "exit"

for Act 5:

> at about 6:32: please insert the epilogue from act 1 at this spot

> at the very end: you forgot the final disclaimer: "End of The Busie Body by Susannah Centlivre"

thank you

Sonia
Funny I remember reading the missing lines. Must have been an over-enthusiastic edit :(
I thought the epilogue was odd being there, but wouldn't have moved it of my own initiative.

Sir Jealous Traffick act 2
https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/busiebody_sirjealoustraffick_2.mp3
:lol: this is a hilarious character. Classic Molière "old guy" who wants to keep a young girl pure but fails dismally. You are doing a good job of being the stern father (the audience will love to hate him). I enjoyed the sarcastic tone of voice in some lines. Looking forward to the rest.

Thank you Alan, totally PL ok

Sir Francis Gripe, Act 3, duration 5:39
https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/busiebody_sirfrancisgripe_3_128kb.mp3
I kinda start feeling sorry for Sir Francis, even though he is probably not the nicest person, still, you portray him so full of love and enthusiasm, that it's a tragedy they all only make fun of him to con him.

Great job again, Mike, thank you, Act 3 also PL ok

and here is the funny act 4, which has me coughing a lot :lol:

I also inserted a scream in the middle, which was in the stage directions. If Grace can give us another one for Isabinda, we can be merged nicely for special effect.
