Post Rights
Are the show rights for Sunset Blvd still restricted? I didn't find any indication on the R&H Company site.

I'm pretty sure they're not available professionally - some enquiries were made by the company I work for and we can't get the rights. Not sure about amateur rights but I would think that if the professional rights aren't available, then the amateur rights won't be either. I suspect it's due to the film which is supposed to be being made in the not-too-distant future.

Apparently professional rights are starting to open up...

The Fulton Opera House in Lancaster PA is advertising it for their season next year.
