Co-Writer of Spider-Man Musical To Chronicle Experience in New Book
Glen Berger, co-writer of Broadway’s Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark is slated to write a book about his experience working on the infamous musical. EW reports that the book, titled Song of Spider-Man: The Inside Story of the Most Controversial Musical in Broadway History will be published by Simon & Schuster and is due out sometime next year.
Berger co-wrote the musical with Julie Taymor, a visionary director who helped bring The Lion King to the stage. Taymor was let go from the production in 2011 and sued the producers for continuing to use her work. The producers then countersued, but a settlement has been reached for now. The lawsuit joins a list of problems that musical has faced since its inception. Its history is riddled with financial problems, injuries and delays.
