Think its really sad that the Matilda the Musical Broadway people have combed through YouTube and closed down many little girls home videos of ‘Naughty’ including my daughters! She loves your songs & I think its a tribute to you & the show, that so many kids posted their videos. Yes, I understand they may have been infringing copyright but where is the harm in it? Just more publicity for a great show! Thought you should know. Many thanks, Debbie. Fan & Mum of a very sad 10 year old.
