Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark is flying high on Broadway (and pulling in over $1 million in ticket sales weekly), but it wasn't always smooth sailing at the Foxwoods Theatre, especially during the show's extensive preview period. The musical's co-librettist Glen Berger is set to write a memoir about his time spent working on the Broadway specatcle, according to The New York Times.
Simon & Schuster has acquired Berger's book, Song of Spider-Man: The Inside Story of America's Most Controversial Musical. No release date has been set for the book at this time.
Berger began work on the show with original director and co-book writer Julie Taymor, then later teamed with Taymor's replacement, Roberto Aguirre Sacasa. Berger is the author of the plays The Wooden Breeks and Underneath the Lintel.
Featuring music by U2's Bono and the Edge, Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark continues to run at the Foxwoods Theatre, starring Reeve Carney, Rebecca Faulkenberry and Robert Cuccioli.
