Play Names and Terms
The sound files available here feature native speakers pronouncing the play names and terms from well-known plays and musicals frequently produced in the theatre. Recordings often include place names, people names, idioms, phrases, quotes, and non-English words that are sometimes difficult for non-native speakers to pronounce. Often the speaker has interesting commentary on these words and terms.
(If you are a theatre director or dialect coach, and have engaged a native speaker to record the names, idioms, or other terms used in the play you are working on, please consider contributing that recording and accompanying text file to IDEA for us to add to this list for the benefit of future productions of that play.)
