You will also receive undisclosed paychecks for their work in developing the work. The information is from the Reuters news agency.
"The legal dispute between us over and we hope that any problem between the producers and Ms. Taymor with regard to her role as author can be resolved to the satisfaction of everyone involved," he said in a statement Karen Azenberg, president of Stage Directors and Choreographers Society, a group representing Taymor.
Taymor entered in court last year against the producers of Spider-Man, claiming copyright infringement and they made "unauthorized and illegal" that she developed the material for the musical, adapted from the Marvel Comics hero to the stage.

Despite the script eccentric Taymor and horrible reviews from critics, Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark has been a great success on Broadway, especially since the musical was reworked with more creative influence of composers Bono and the Edge of U2.
