Is it because everyone along the way, starting with the playwright, on to the dramaturge, the director, the actors, the producer, see themselves as artists and have an inherent 'right' to interpret the work as an artist?

Perhaps this is how theater works. I'm not qualified to say.

What if I write a novel, a work of prose. Does the editor, the publisher and anyone else involved with the work have a right to interpret the original work in their own vein?

Two different genres of writing I know, but surely there must be some sense of gleaning the playwright's intent and striving to embody it?
