Filed under: Music MinuteBroadway BabiesCherTwitter

Well KINDA…?

From what we can glean off of her not-so-clear tweets, some mysterious theatre producers are using Cher's thrilling life as fodder for a Broadway musical!

Cher is apparently co-writing, as it's about HER LIFE, and there will be THREE Cher's: One from the Sunny saga, one up through the Believe tour, and one current-day Cher!

Hooohhh (as we say while flipping our ebony extensions) how intriguing!!!

We are SO DOWN for so many Chers on one stage!

Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark's Bono Talks Julie Taymor

Filed under: Broadway BabiesBono

bono talks julie taymor

Back in May, Bono spoke about Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, and he had less-than-flattering things to say about it.

Now, Bono has opened up about "sort of" director/co-writer Julie Taymor.

Here's what he had to say about her:

"She's so involved with the details of her work and perhaps she got a little tired. She got so close to it perhaps in the last moments she couldn't see it."

Inneresting insights, Bono. Guess we'll see if the musical fares better without her, when the revamped version officially opens on Tuesday.

What do U think about Bono's comments about Julie?

Spider-Man: Take Out The Check Book! Spidey Producers Owe Julie Taymor $$$!

julie taymor owed money by spider man team

Back in March, we learned that original Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark director/co-writer Julie Taymor would retain her credits, despite the fact that she left the show.

We had heard at the time that one of the reasons she was being allowed to keep those credits was because "[the] producers have spent so much money that they don't have a cash payout for Taymor anyway."

Looks like credits might not be enough, because now the Stage Directors and Choreographers Society is filing an arbitration claim against Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark producers on Julie's behalf.

The union claims that Julie is owed approximately $300,000 in royalties, which she has yet to receive.

One of the lead producers on the show, Michael Cohl, says that the Spidey team is in the process of "trying to resolve financial disputes."

Hopefully they're able to work everything out soon! The show opens on Tuesday, and we can't imagine the producers would want something like this hanging over their heads.

Then again, Spider-Man has been plagued with so many issues, maybe they're just used to dealing with drama by now.

What do u think about all this Spider-Man dramz? Do U think Julie Taymor deserves $300k, even though she was fired?
