An Inside Report from the Spiderman Musical

The soon-to-launch $65 million Broadway production of Spiderman will be the most expensive, most ambitious, most hyped (and perhaps most delayed) Broadway musical ever. Julie Taymor ("The Lion King") will direct, and Bono (U2) wrote the music.

I have a very good friend in the company. And while she's a positive, upbeat sort of person, with incentive to hope for the best about what she hopes will be her meal ticket for years to come, she reports, glumly, that Taymor has overreached.
