The tale of Spider-Man gets more and more tangled. It’s now been reported in the New York Times that the production — rather than opening next week, as had been scheduled — is going to shut down for a few weeks and that rehab is expected to take three more months. At that point, the Times says, director Julie Taymor may or may not still be around.
Here’s the story.
And here’s the official announcement saying that Taymor is out — sort of.
After 2-1/2 months of previews and three opening nights postponed, theater critics from the country’s major newspapers have stepped in and written their reviews of Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, the $65-million musical that has become a running joke on Broadway.
And the word is not good.
