Pay Dispute Between Taymor and 'Spider-Man' Producer

Julie The often beleaguered Broadway musical “Spiderman: Turn Off the Dark” is set to open June 14, but the web of drama and disagreements continues even two weeks away from its debut. The Daily Beast has reported a dispute between producer Michael Cohl and ousted director Julie Taymor regarding compensation for her work on the show. Executive Director of the Stage Directors and Choreographers Society Laura Penn told the Daily Beast that Taymor is still owed six months pay.

  Penn also said that neither she nor Taymor has received statements of activities, such as box office receipts and operating costs. As a result, it is hard to determine how much Taymor is actually owed. Penn estimates that the director’s fees are in the $200,000 to $300,000 range, in addition to other royalties entitled to her as author of the show.
