HBO rented out a legitimate theatre in Los Angeles, complete with an invited audience to give the illusion this was a filmed version of the stage play. When N. Richard Nash heard of this HBO production, he sued HBO insisting he held the rights to all stage performances. HBO countered that they now held the film rights, and since it wasn't a paying audience they were within their legal rights  to film it and air it. The suit threatened to delay the air date, but just one day prior to airing, HBO settled with N. Richard Nash for an undisclosed amount. A
