I'm having a play produced as an audio experience - recorded, not livestreamed - by a well-established theater company in the United States. Of course they've lost revenue due to Covid. Any suggestions of questions I should ask the producers about payments, royalties, permissions, etc.? What's unique here is that this recording would be "an object," not one of a run of performances of the material. Would I get paid per broadcast? What if the audio file were just available to listeners all the time, whenever they wanted to listen to it? Is this a flat fee thing, and if so what range of money are we talking about? Any thoughts? Guesses? I would retain the rights to the script, of course, but what of the recording itself?
