Director Julie Taymor Says Work Is Being Done On Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark - Playbill.com
Julie Taymor, director of Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark admits she has a lot of work to do to get the show ready for its Jan 11, 2011 Broadway opening at the Foxwoods Theatre. She expresses her feelings, which seem like disgust, over the negative press the show has been getting. Many will argue that the first preview was a disaster with five stops in the show and technical glitches resulting in a concussion for actress Natalie Mendoza. Taymor, who also directed Disney's The Lion King on Broadway is often criticized for having amazing artistic vision, but failing to follow through. However in this case, if she doesn't clean up the show in time for opening, producers could end up $60 million in the hole.
