    It looks like the master withdrew it:
    Leonard Bernstein -- The Composer

    I am not a big Wiki fan, but this seems to be the real thing. You could ask Wilmer Wise. He had an inside track to Bernstein based on his phenomenal playing in West Side Story.

    A White House Cantata

    After his death in 1990, Bernstein's children and associates sifted through the many variations and revisions of the score and authorized a choral version entitled A White House Cantata, which deleted nearly all the remaining play-within-a-play references.[3] (Some can still be heard in the duet "Monroviad.") BBC Radio broadcast the London debut of this work in 1997, and three years later Deutsche Grammophon released a CD recording. Both the London concert and the DG recording were conducted by Kent Nagano with the London Symphony Orchestra.[6] The Leonard Bernstein estate controls the licensing of performances of the cantata version, but refuses to allow the performance, recording, or publication of the original musical.
