Every week, TicketForce brings you news on one of four industries: theatre, music, sports or racing. This week’s #theatrewrap features the most expensive and debated musical to ever hit Broadway.
The $75 million musical “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark” is getting its own book according to The New York Times. It is reported that Glen Berger, who worked with director Julie Taymor on the show’s original script, has documented the drama surrounding Taymor’s firing in a book called “Song of Spider-Man”.
“Song of Spider-Man” will reflect on the behind-the-scenes drama that took place, mostly in the media. According to comicbookresources.com, “the book apparently contains some revelations, including that Berger and Taymor worried the musical’s story was “ridiculous” even while they were writing it.”
Before Taymor’s original creation, Arachne, was ever added to the script, Marvel executives had allegedly expressed concerns over Taymor’s vision, even rejecting the initial 20-age script. Yet the script was eventually approved and Arachne was created.
