Director Julie Taymor wants to open on Broadway, but will settle for a tent.

www.LA.com's gossip column has an article about the proposed Spider-man Broadway Musical, directed by Julie Taymor (director of "Across the Universe", in theaters now) with "rock-and-roll musical" score by U2's Bono and The Edge.

Taymor wants the show to be on Broadway:

"We want to open in New York, and there aren't enough Broadway houses," says Taymor, adding that Bono and The Edge have finished the book and lyrics for the project. "It's really tricky because ours is a big musical that's really unusual. It will have some fabulous things in it because it's got a very strong book." She says, "I'm very proud of the songs that Bono and Edge wrote. It's a real rock-and-roll musical, so we're not worried about that aspect. We just have to find where we're going to do it -- even if we have to do it in a tent, which we're looking into -- and when. It'll at least be a year away."
