Nice one Rachel. I understand why you were apprehensive about sending the email but in this instance it needed to be done. You obviously did it in a diplomatic way and it seems the theatre are going to act in a diplomatic way too. So hopefully it will have a desired positive effect.

This debacle sounds like it was yet another person trying to cash in on Leonard's current wave of popularity. At least he didn't write a book!

Normally, I would say that anything that could bring Leonard Cohen's work to new audiences, provide new exposure of his career, would be a wonderful thing. What bothers me about this is Mr. Bill Shelley is profiting from this. It's one thing to be a fan and get a little carried away in your excitement and maybe when you're trying to introduce Leonard to friends and family, you get some information wrong (dates, places, incorrect song meanings). That doesn't bother me. Again, opening up the door to a stranger and letting them learn about Leonard's career is wonderful - but to profit from it, when you clearly don't know what you're talking about. For shame, Bill Shelley. For shame.
