Danish Theater Cancels Amy Winehouse Play
Posted by Joseph Lee on 11.27.2012



Billboard reports that a play about Amy Winehouse that would have premiered in Denmark in January has been canceled after Winehouse's family blocked the use of her music and photos.

Winehouse spokesman Chris Goodman said the family never gave permission to use her materials.

The play Amy was written by 11 Danish playwrights and would have opened on January 30 in a 220-seat theater in central Copenhagen. It was based on interviews, concerts, Winehouse's letters and newspaper articles. The Danish copyright agency Koda had given permission to Denmark's Royal Theater to perform it.

Koda spokesman Nicolaj Hylten-Cavallius said: "We acted in good faith when we gave them the permission for the performance. We believed that the format - a theater play - was OK. We were told by her father and the lawyers around him that we can forget all about the rights for the music, the photos, branding and everything."

Koda also said that Mitch Winehouse objected the use of music, photos or belongings but didn't say why. The play would have shown her life and relationship with drugs and alcohol. Winehouse died from alcohol poisoning in July of last year at the age of 27.
