Letter to Sonia Friedman Productions  
emraldeyedauter asked me to post the email I sent to the production co on May 16th about this comm and the petition, etc to keep everyone informed. The letter and response is below the cut. The response is naturally very neutral, but the important thing is that they know we are out there.

I may also post some of my more favorite petition comments here since the actual petition is getting to be an extremely long read. (Yay!)

I represent a group of people who are fans of Shakespeare, David Tennant and Catherine Tate. We started out as a tongue-in-check Livejournal community ( http://nomuchadoforme.livejournal.com/ ) commiserating on our inability to attend whether due to timing, finances or distance. We began discussing the petition done for David Tennant's Hamlet DVD. I created a petition at http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/muchadotodvd/ so we could show that there was interest in a recorded version of this play as well.

My initial plan was to close the petition and present what signatures we had at the opening day of the play, however, I was asked to keep it open by some of those involved with the Hamlet petition. Still, I wanted to give the producers a heads up about the effort and that we are continuing to compile signatures and support.

As of this writing, we have over 3200 signatures, a few hundred "likes" on the petition's Facebook page, and we have been blogged on David Tennant's biggest fan-site, david-tennant.com.

Additionally, the petition allows comments and I have found them to be surprising and interesting to read. I have been collecting some of my favorites for the community and I would be happy to send you a file or community post link once I have enough.

Many thanks for your time and attention.



Dear Glory,

Thank you for letting us know about your group.

We appreciate your interest.

Hmm keeping their cards close to their chest by the sounds of it. Wonder if we should email them again to say we now have over 7500 signatures.

Still its good they know about us and they did retweet the petition in the last 24 hours at there quest of another fan.
