Does the Guild review contracts? What contracts will you review? How should I send them to you?
Guild members are required to use the Guild’s Approved Production Contract for all First Class productions (i.e., Broadway and equivalent productions throughout the U.S., Canada and London’s West End). These agreements are subject to the Guild’s certification.
In addition, the Business Affairs Department will review a member’s unsigned contracts for other theater-related matters, including production agreements, collaboration agreements, publishing agreements, agency agreements and underlying rights agreements.
The agreements can be submitted through the Help Desk, by mail or by fax.
