debuts, american or otherwise

Saw this on the NY Times website: Sarah Kane Premiere Leads Soho Rep Season. It says their production of Blasted will mark that play's American debut... even though that play made a Midwest Premier in Chicago at A Red Orchid Theatre in the 2006-2007 season? I know Sarah Kane's estate is particular about licensing productions. Anybody got the poop on this? "Premiere" billing drives me bonkers.
