"Spider-Man" musical may lose its director

Is Julie Taymor going to exit her own infamous Broadway adaptation of "Spider-Man"?


If you thought safety violations, actor injuries and bad reviews were the biggest problems "Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark" has, you can add its biggest one yet to the list. The show may lose its own director, Julie Taymor. Here is a brief excerpt from The New York Times:

"The producers of Broadway's 'Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark' were negotiating on Monday with their director, Julie Taymor, for her to work with a newly expanded creative team to fix the critically derided $65 million musical or possibly leave the show, according to people who work on 'Spider-Man' or have been briefed on the negotiations."

If Taymor doesn't make changes to the show, including improving the highly-criticized story of the musical, then she may either exit the show or even be fired. If Taymor goes, this means that the show could either get a new director (Bono himself is apparently among those considered to replace Taymor), or it could be shut down altogether. Since the show has been delayed several times already, Spider-Man's Broadway future looks pretty grim.
