Ousted Julie Taymor To Attend Opening Night In More 'Spider-Man' Drama

Julie Taymor is planning to attend Tuesday's opening night of the Broadway musical "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark," her spokeswoman said, returning to the Foxwoods Theater three months after the producers ousted her as director as part of their remake of the $70 million show into a more family-friendly entertainment. Her decision to go comes after several cast members and friends called her recently to encourage her to attend, including the star, Reeve Carney, who said in a recent interview that "Julie deserves to be at our opening as much as anyone."
