About This Course

You might not assume that lawyers would be interested in breaking into “the business,” but the legalities of representing theatre production can be quite complex and altogether fascinating. Enough so that our esteemed lecturer, Donald C. Farber, authored, among other works, From Option to Opening, a book which details theatre representation from beginning to end. Beyond the standard Literary Purchase Agreement, Farber reviews the many agreements which deal with the relationship between the creative staff and the management. Profit sharing, performance rights, securities law and the many other details whose legalities influence theatre production including people and producers, is covered as well as the producing entity, how the pie, that is the potential profits, are shared, what must be done to satisfy the securities laws, the importance of merger of rights, the difference between small performing rights and grand performing rights and the other myriad items that one faces in putting together a play. Potential pitfalls are noted as is best practices. An incredibly educational and enjoyable CLE course, Farber delivers with incredible humor and insight.
