A friend is writing a very silly musical version of a 90's era B-movie. He's determined to stage a production of this masterpiece, but it seems doubtful that he could get permission from the film's owners. Can he get away with this? [more inside]

CopyrightFilter: If I want to adapt a copyrighted(?) book into a theater performance, do I need to get the rights? Can I write a script, maybe even do a workshop production or do I need to get the rights before I can even think about adaptation? Who do I talk to to get the rights, and how much does this usually cost? Does it matter if the venue is tiny, and the theater company has no money?
