Namely that 1 no one owns the corporation and 2 that the essence of the corporation is the separation of control dominium in legalese and benefit usufructus. The corporation is essentially and magnificently useless. It is an arrangement that would have driven Roman lawyers insane, mainly because they equated control and benefit: if you got the use of something, you owned it. Breaking the link between control and benefit was to them dangerous, not to say impossible. But medieval lawyers mostly priests found a way round the Roman legal tradition. Otherwise the Trust has no say in what the Corporation does or how it does it.

Eliot Rosewater, drunk, volunteer fireman and president of the fabulously rich Rosewater Foundation, is about to attempt a noble experiment with human nature, with a little help from writer, Kilgore Trout.
Any fan of the music of Menken and Ashman will delight in producing this gem, which marked the first collaboration for the two. Full of unforgettable characters and a rich and hysterically funny story, God Bless You, Mr.
Rosewater is a perfect choice for theatres that are looking for hidden greats of musical theatre. Rosewater is probably closest and dearest to my heart It was my very first commercially produced musical and, more importantly, my first collaboration with Howard Ashman. And that story struck a deep chord in both Howard and me.
The fact that Kurt Vonnegut himself became creatively involved in our little musical was a total dream-come-true. If you look and listen carefully, the seeds of our later work are all over this musical. We lost Howard Ashman way too soon, or that list of titles would have been much longer.
That makes it all the more meaningful to me that, nearly 40 years after its creation, God Bless You Mr Rosewater now joins those other titles out in the world.
