The producers of the $65 million Broadway musical Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark are negotiating to bring in new members of the creative team that may lead to the exit of the embattled show’s acclaimed director, Julie Taymor, according to the New York Times. The show’s backers are reportedly discussing many aspects of the production, from how radically to overhaul the script and score, what individuals should be hired to assist in that overhaul, and when to open the show. The musical’s official premiere, already delayed five times, seems likely to be postponed once again from its current date: March 15. Ken Sunshine, who has worked for several months as a consultant on the show, tells EW he is “just not commenting on speculation.”
