The Goldman estate or the John Collier estate?

I have always been under the impression that neither Sondheim nor Goldman felt it could be successfully expanded to make a full-length stage piece.

In 2008, Sondheim said, ""The rights are very tightly controlled by the Collier estate [... which] only gave us the television rights, and I doubt if that includes any kind of public sales of the video." Not too long after that,of course, it was released on video. But Goldman died in 1999, at which time the Collier estate surely would not have allowed expansion for the stage. But, again, I don't recall ever hearing that either Sondheim or Goldman thought trying to do that would be a good idea, or that Sondheim wanted to expand it after Goldman died but the estate refused to allow that.
