Although settlement terms were not released, a document filed Aug. 30 in the U.S. District Court in Manhattan said the case could be reopened within two months if the agreement breaks down. A jury trial on the case was originally scheduled to start in early 2013.
According to the Associated Press, Dale Cendali, lead attorney for the producers, said she could not comment on the agreement except to confirm that it was reached.
In November 2011, original Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark director Taymor filed a lawsuit against the producers of the musical claiming that the producers violated her creative rights and did not compensate her for her work on the musical.
The first oral arguments were made in the federal suit in June 2012. Read the earlier Playbill.com story for a complete timeline of the legal action involved with Broadway's Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark.
