Audacity fails to export as mp3 in High Sierra

Hi, I recently upgraded to High Sierra. Having done a DJ mix using Audacity I was left frustrated when I could not save / export the file as an mp3. I kept getting an error window and the App would crash - why??

Next time you get the error window, Shift-Command-4 and draw a capture box around it. Post it here.
