Julie Taymor, the ousted director of the long-troubled Broadway production of Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, claims in a new interview that U2's Bono and the Edge mischaracterized her as "exhausted" and "overwrought" when the production went awry. Taymor, who is suing the show's producers, told Esquire her collaborators were working behind her back to make changes to the show.
Taymor says she was frustrated by the fact that her collaborators and producers were not often present during previews. "Those people weren't there, so how does Bono know?" she told the magazine. "I'm sorry."
