Glen Berger, co-writer of the disaster-prone musical ''Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark,'' is working on a book. ''Song of Spider-Man: The Inside Story of the Most Controversial Musical in Broadway History,'' will come out next year, Simon & Schuster announced Tuesday.
Simon & Schuster publisher Jonathan Karp said the book would be, ''entomologically speaking,'' the ''ultimate fly-on-the-wall account'' of how a musical is made.
The big budget production became notorious for a series of stunt accidents during previews. The show was eventually revamped and the original director, Julie Taymor, was fired.
Taymor later sued the producers, who countersued. A tentative settlement was reached over the summer.
