Will Julie Taymor Attend The Opening Of Spider-Man Tonight?

| Filed under: Broadway Babies


That depends on what you believe.

If you believe that despite their differences, the producers of Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark still value what director Julie Taymor did for the production of the musical since its inception, then yes she will be there tonight at the show's official opening. If you think the producers still hold a grudge against Taymor for all the "trouble" she caused them, then … no, not even then. She's going to be there. She deserves to be there, no matter how much bad blood is between herself and the other creators.

Still, her people haven't made a formal announcement that she will attend opening night, but according to sources, it is very unlikely she will stay away. As they explain:

"I'm told that the show's masterful creator, Julie Taymor, is likely to attend the premiere. She should, and she should take a big bow at curtain call. Tonight closes almost nine years worth of hard work."

That's exactly how we feel. She might've had a hand in its pitfalls, but so did a lot of other people who put far less time, effort and creativity in getting the show established to begin with. We don't think its fair not to recognize all the good things she did when so much attention has been given to the bad. Past is in the past. Let's swing forward and see if this show has a future!
