Joy Goodwin's piece from the New York Times (11/22/2008) discusses the increasing tendency of nonprofit theatre companies to take a percentage of a playwright's subisidiary rights income… in some cases as much as 40%.
ASK THE READERS:
What do you think about this trend?
Does a nonprofit production add enough value to a new play to justify sharing the playwright's income from other productions, film rights, publishing, licensing, etc?
At what level of production does it make sense for a playwright to share?
Post your comments… I'll summarize the results in a future post.
