What should the person writing the letter include? just what they thought of the show?

It should show a personal link towards you, your show, and why they liked it. Not just general impressions.

what do you mean by personal link?
How long should it be?
and if the person in charge is unable to watch the performance, then who should do the letter?
thanks for the help!!

I assume the letter is from someone who hired you to perform and was pleased. The letter should reflect how they know you, what you did for them, and how it benefitted them.

The ideal length of such a letter is one page. The person who writes the letter doesn't necessarily have to have seen your show, but they should be able to quantify the benefit your performance provided his or her organization.

Was it a party or other event you made memorable? Was it a restaurant where you brought in repeat business or assisted greatly with making customers enjoy their visit? Was it a trade show where you brought more people to the kiosk to see a company's product?

Thanks for the info... I have been doing shows for a couple years, but never thought to get anything from them... thanks again.

"Personal Link" means that the letter should show that the people who write this letter write about YOU and YOUR Performance, not only general statements. It is very good if they can say what was special about YOUR show.
