    Ad-lib performance

    Would you please correct my grammar and punctuation in the following sentences?

    The actor had somehow forgotten the part of his text and had to improvise the last ten minutes. After the play ended, he believed this would be seen as a fiasco, but his ad-lib performance turned out to be a success, as well with the audience as with the critics.

    The actor had forgotten his lines. So he had to improvise. He thought his performance would be seen as a fiasco, but it was a success not only with the audience but with the critics as well.

    He had to improvise for the last ten minutes. And "ad-lib performance" is perfectly fine.
