Taymor, 'Spider-Man' Producers to Square Off

0929 taymore Though stream of broken actors flowing from "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" appears to have stopped, the Broadway musical is still generating off-stage drama. The New York times reported today that the show's producers will face former director Julie Taymor next week in an arbitration hearing. The Stage Directors and Choreographers Society filed an arbitration claim in June on behalf of Taymor, who asserts that she is owed $500,000 in unpaid royalties. Taymor was dismissed from the production in March. In addition to directing, she co-wrote the show's original book.

According to the Times, producers will argue that Taymor breached her contract and was "inefficient" in her job, leading to the unprecedented series of delays that plagued the show's preview period. Taymor will reportedly argue that she is due royalties under the SDCS collective bargaining agreement.
