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 I were Julie Taymor, I’d volunteer to leave, then run away laughing hysterically. The best part is that since Bono and the Edge are the producers, the music won’t change and will continue to suck no matter what. Wee! Goddamn I am going to be sad when this debacle finally ends. the musical itself may suck, but the making of the musical has been massively, massively entertaining. Thanks to Tim M. for the tip.
