'Spider-Man' on Broadway Producers, Julie Taymor Near Settlement
Asked by Bartiromo how the producers could have prevented things from turning so ugly, Cohl said, "Holy smokes. Not use Julie … I'm not sure there's a whole lot we could done."
Cohl went on to explain how he claims the producers tried to give Taymor the freedom to make the "Spider-Man" musical a success, "We showed up a lot but we let Julie have her way. And everybody told us how she behaves the best and creates the best in crisis. And we're sitting their feeling the crisis, but you let Picasso paint."
When Bartiromo shared some of the producer's thoughts on Taymor and her role in the production, the director was visibly upset.
"What's on the stage, I own," she said. "I'm still very proud of what I did with my collaborators."
