Broadway's troubled Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark is back on, at least according to its director. We ran into Julie Taymor at last night's opening of the Metropolitan Opera season, where she told us all original cast members (including Evan Rachel Wood and Alan Cumming, reported to have been released from their contracts) are still onboard, "as long as everyone's excited." And the money is flowing, she says: "We had funding and now there's more funding. It's all good. Tutto è bene!"
