Original tape date: March 30, 2012.
First aired: April 14, 2012.
Reporter Patrick Healy of "The New York Times" drops by to discuss the contentious lawsuit between the producers of "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark," and the musical's former director, Julie Taymor. Healy also helps us to kick off Theater Talk's coverage of the 2012 Tony competition by comparing the new musicals "Newsies" and "Once" and speculating as to which one, if either of them, the Tony voters will pick as the Best Musical in June. We then pay tribute to the late producer Theodore Mann with highlights from our 2010 interview with the Off-Broadway pioneer and founder of the Circle in the Square Theatre.
