I was disappointed/confused by Julie Taymor's decision to direct Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark.
A Midsummer Night's Dream
Theatre for a New Audience
Through Jan. 12, 2014

Thankfully, Julie Taymor's Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark debacle is behind her and she can get back to what she does best: Shakespeare. She'll inaugurate Theatre for a New Audience's beautiful new home in downtown Brooklyn, the Polonsky Shakespeare Center, with a production of the fantasy-filled comedy. This is Taymor's fourth Shakespeare for TFANA — two of which she later adapted into films — so many expect big things from her Midsummer.
