'The Great Comet' Dispute Resolved

(image credit: greatcometbroadway.com)
Last week I posted about the dispute between the lead producer of the new musical 'Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812' which resulted in litigation. A couple of days later it appears the dispute is resolved.

Variety reports:
The dispute between the commercial producers of  Broadway musical “Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812” and the not-for-profit theater where the project originated has arrived at a resolution, according to a spokesperson for the show.

The new agreement, which both sides have opted to keep private, sees Ars Nova given more prominent credit with the lawsuit dropped in recompense.

The dust-up gets at the heart of the tensions that can underlie the increasingly close relationship between commercial producers and not-for-profit organizations. The issue of credit can be enormously important both for a not-for-profit, which gets a boost in prestige and prominence from a successful Broadway transfer, and for the commercial producers, eager to be credited for their own contributions in moving the show on to a future life.
