Speaker: Neil Adleman, Esq., Harbottle & Lewis LLP
Neil Adleman will compare and contrast the legal issues and business issues between the leading theater capitals of London and New York. This will include how musicals and plays are developed, investment raised, theaters booked, tickets sold and royalties calculated. The program will also look at the differing dynamics of producing in the West End and Broadway – how much money there is to be made and the long term value and exploitation of rights. Practitioners of theater law, and those with an interest in practicing in the field (or those just interested in the business of theater), will find this program invaluable and are highly encouraged to attend.
Neil Adleman is a partner specializing in theatre at London firm Harbottle & Lewis LLP. West End and Broadway productions he has advised on include War Horse, Billy Elliot, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time. He has advised on the West End transfer of Broadway productions including Wicked, Book of Mormon, Beautiful, Motown and Spamalot. Other clients include the National Theatre, Donmar Warehouse and The Old Vic.
