Julie Taymor talks about Bono, the Edge and ‘Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark’ - VIDEO
"What was exhausting was the fact that the producers were absent... Those people weren't there, so how does Bono know? I'm sorry."
Taymor attended the show’s opening in June along with the likes of Bono’s pal President Clinton, Cindy Crawford, Robert De Niro and a host of others.
"It was a last-minute decision (to go). I got letters from a lot of actors, and Bono had wanted me to come, so I went. I applauded all of the people I worked with, and I think people were happy to see me there,” she says.
The show got a new script and a new ending after she left the production, so what does she think of the finished product?
"I think the show is what it is, and we'll see if it lasts. I would like it to last so I get paid,” she replied.
Taymor is suing the producers of the show, which is playing to packed houses at Foxwoods Theatre, for royalties and salary. It will take years and years to turn a penny in profit given that 'Spider-Man' is far and away the most expensive musical ever produced on Broadway.
