Theater Law: Cases and Materials
Although normally thought of in terms of its creative and artistic values, staging a play or musical involves numerous legal relationships and obligations. Accordingly, this casebook provides the first comprehensive overview of the law governing the theater industry. Among the subjects examined are the history of the theater; the practice of theater law; the creative rights of playwrights; the financial rights of producers and investors; the employment rights of directors, performers, and crew members; and the attendance rights of audiences. While principally concerned with Broadway and Off-Broadway productions, the final two chapters focus on road tours and amateur theater groups.
