NEW YORK — Producers of Broadway's "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" have fired back in their legal fight with one-time director Julie Taymor, claiming in a countersuit she failed to fulfill her legal obligations and refused to collaborate on changes to the $75 million show.
The countersuit was filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York against Taymor and her company, LOH Inc. It argues the show "is a success despite Taymor, not because of her."
The Tony Award-winning director slapped the producers and her former co-book writer with a copyright infringement lawsuit in November, alleging they violated her creative rights and haven't compensated her for the work she put into Broadway's most expensive musical. She's seeking a minimum of $1 million.
