No names except the title, performer(s) above the title and Producer(s) shall precede Author’s names.  No names except the title and star(s) above the title may be larger or more prominent than Author’s, and no names except star(s) above the title and the theatre presenting the Play and the director and Producer(s) may receive billing as large and as prominent as Authors.   The names of each Author shall be (i) equal in size, style of type, coloring, boldness, and prominence and (ii) equal to 50% of the size of the non-logo title of the Play but in the same style of type, and no less than 25% of the size of the logo title. Where credit is given in a so-called “billing box,” and no credits other than the title, and the stars receiving credit above the title and the theatre are outside the billing box, Author’s billing shall be based on the size of the title in the billing box, provided credits for any producer in such billing box are proportionately reduced and provided that in all circumstances, Author’s credit must be legible. For all credit purposes hereunder, Author’s billing shall read in the following order:  Book by Ivan Menchell, Lyrics by Don Black, Music by Frank Wildhorn.
