Julie Taymor’s last theater experience was notably painful for basically everyone involved. Now she’s putting all that Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark muck behind her with an old friend, William Shakespeare. Taymor will helm an Off-Broadway version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream as the debut performance for Fort Greene’s Theater for a New Audience this autumn. The woman who brought The Lion King to Broadway has previously directed The Taming of the Shrew, The Tempest, and Titus Andronicus, also adapting the latter two for the screen.
