More About This Textbook


Covering the period March 2004 to March 2005, this 2005 Supplement accompanies the casebook, Theater Law: Cases and Materials and provides a wealth of fresh material about the theater industry, including commentary on:
  • the protests that engulfed Behzti and Jerry Springer—The Opera in England, Children of Rosental and Rasputin in Russia, and The Vagina Monologues in Uganda;
  • the plagiarism charges leveled against Byrony Lavery, the author of the Tony-nominated drama Frozen;
  • the numerous shows that ran into financial problems during the season, including Bombay Dreams, Brooklyn the Musical, Caroline, or Change, Gem of the Ocean, and The Normal Heart;
  • the latest court decision in the long-running Livent fraud case;
  • the Deborah Voigt-Royal Opera House discriminatory firing dispute;
  • the unprecedented string of injuries that befell stars Christina Applegate (Sweet Charity), Richard Dreyfus (The Producers), Nathan Lane (The Frogs), Idina Menzel (Wicked), and Christian Slater (One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest);
  • the growth of in-theater advertising as well as the firestorm caused by the Shubert Organization's decision to rename the Plymouth and Royale theaters for two of its executives;
  • the landmark agreement regarding non-Equity tours, as well as the overnight emergence of Las Vegas as an alternative to such productions; and
  • the Axson-Flynn-University of Utah theater department litigation settlement.

Also included in the supplement are a new principal case involving Michael Flatley's Lord of the Dance, a list of recently-released theater-themed movies, and updated demographic information on Broadway audiences.
