I'd like to use the posters of musicals as well as other images from the musicals playing in NY and London on a commercial website to help promote the shows. How do I go about doing this? What kind of costs could I expect? Thanks,

I'm not an official Google Researcher, but speaking from my own experience in television, we've been given permission to use posters and official production photographs at no charge as long as the productions were still running at the time and we weren't saying anything negative about them. Whether this applies for a commercial website, I don't know. We obtained these images easily by contacting the publicists for the plays or musicals, who then sent us high-res .jpgs. Now, If you want to use a poster/photo/or other image from a show that has closed, then it gets more complicated, particularly if the poster has a painting or illustration or other key art. You not only need permission from the producers, you sometimes need to get permission from the artist as well. And this could mean license fees. Or not. You never know.
