Director Anne-Louise Sarks had been told she couldn’t use the song by Taylor Swift’s label the night before the performance debut of her play Seventeen – a play where 17-year-olds play 70 year-olds.

Left in a dire situation, Sarks went on a Twitter campaign to get the star’s permission.

She also tweeted a heap of other celebs in an effort to get any kind of attention from Taylor Swift, enlisting the help of comedian Tim Minchin as well.

And permission came from the starlet herself.

The performance is at Belvoir Street Theatre, a Sydney-based theatre in Surry Hills where we held digital disruption conference Daze of Disruption this year.

Nice one Tay Tay!
