SPIDER-MAN Choreographer Daniel Ezralow Releases Statement
SPIDER-MAN is well past its unprecedented hundredth preview on Broadway, but a couple of weeks ago, SPIDER-MAN: Turn Off The Dark made their latest in a long line of announcements - that they now have rescheduled their opening night for the sixth time, for Tuesday, June 14, 2011.
This morning, Bloomberg News reported that producers are now in talks to replace the show's choreographer, Daniel Ezralow with Chase Brock. Ezralow, who helped to create many of the show's mid-air battles, is a longtime collaborator of Julie Taymor's, having worked with her on Across the Universe, and the Green Bird, along with also staging shows for David Bowie, Sting and U2.
Tonight, Ezralow states that: "As far as I know I am the choreographer and aerial choreographer of Spider-Man. The producers have not addressed any change in my status officially, and they are happily using my choreography on the ground and in the air every night at the Foxwoods Theatre."
As previously announced, Philip William McKinley and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa have joined the creative team to help implement new staging and book rewrites, respectively. The expanded creative team also includes musical consultant Paul Bogaev and sound designer Peter Hylenski.
SPIDER-MAN Turn Off The Dark is now in previews at Broadway's Foxwoods Theatre (213 West 42nd Street).
