In a series of posts to Twitter Wednesday, the DJ and producer released his lawyer's cease and desist letter and stated, "while i appreciate their intent, they REALLY went about this the wrong way and dont fully understand how this diminishes certain endeavours."

The lead character is named Joel Zimmermouse, obviously very similar to Deadmau5's real name -- Joel Zimmerman. It also includes other parody characters, including David Goudda and Avicheese.
Zimmerman's letter claims intellectual property violations against the production. The posted letter was sent to the Al Green Theater, where the musical is being held.
