Accurate -- morning -- BA and out.
I have now seeing Spider-Man turn off the dark which opened last night on Broadway.
That is a complete waste of Columbia education I -- -- -- you -- last line and open -- You know I wasn't gonna go last night because as -- say twenty hours of my life down the drain waste on the show.
I'm sort of on Spiderman strike if you open as I was walking through Times Square I ran into the press agent for the show -- he was Karina.
Bunch of flowers that you give to on the Indian agent Julie -- more at the end of the show so I thought let's do this is a gag -- fun.
So I went up to the lip of the stage carrying flowers and passed them out to cast members and gave one to Juli Timor.
Who got fired I think largely because of and unrelenting number of columns I wrote saying how lousy her production of the show was -- I -- a little -- and she smiled back.
Social pressures are era.
I heard she was coming I was a little surprised I know that relations between her and -- -- -- are not very good.
They put on them that the best face last night but I was told that -- to cast members.
Really asked -- to -- -- picture of -- with -- but you know she looks.
Potential it's terrible she looks like -- tweet with hair he did you see that the show has crowned her down and now she's in an arbitration to collect.
A whale -- she hasn't been paid four from the show so is it not gonna have a happy -- I think for anyone.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I was tough on Julie her version of the show was -- But they then set out and deliberate campaign to smear her and to blame her for the problems of that show.
They spent nine years writing -- -- with her everything that she did they approved and then when the show.
Open to you know six months ago and got trounced them what with the show we -- we hoarding involved and it's all Julie's we were New Zealand to -- They get rid of her they come back now they have to take responsibility for the show anything go through there it is today everybody says it's just a second rate boring theme park show and that's bond which.

They spent eight million dollars and administrative.
Costs if I mean that's spread of people and economic and come on.
I don't there was a report in the Daily Mail in London not too long ago and -- said bottle has moved some of his businesses.
Out of Ireland for tax reasons you know to get tax breaks I -- only had to do was invest -- Spider-Man turn off the dark that's the biggest tax break around.

And they've got discounts out there for forty bucks fifty bucks sixty bucks a make a prediction on the show.
