Why are some shows restricted?

Sometimes a particular musical will not be available for amateur production. A restriction of this kind may be placed on a show when a national tour or a large professional production is taking place. MTI Europe will always endeavour to publish such restrictions on its website. Because restrictions are put in place or lifted at any given moment, it is always important for an organisation to obtain a performing licence before announcing a production. If an organisation has a valid licence and a show becomes restricted, in most cases MTI Europe will be able to honour that previous commitment, even though rights for other organisations in the same area may subsequently be denied
