This edition: Glen Berger, "Song of Spider-Man", Part 1

Episode Details

Original tape date: November 8, 2013.

First aired: December 7, 2013.

Writer Glen Berger discusses his new tell-all book "Song of Spider-Man: The Inside Story of the Most Controversial Musical in Broadway History." Berger spent over five years working with director Julie Taymor to write the musical "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark." He remained on the project to reconstruct the show after she was replaced in 2011, prompting co-host Michael Riedel of the New York Post, to refer to him as “Judas.” Now that the show is up and running (and closing in January 2014 at a loss of over $60 million), Berger defends his actions during what he calls, “a long bad acid trip.”
