In an arbitration claim filed today, the Stage Directors and Choreographers Society alleges that the producers of Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark owe royalties to Julie Taymor, who directed the musical until her highly publicized departure last March. (The suit was first reported by USA Today.) A rep for the show declined to comment on the suit.

After months of delays and previews, Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark is finally set to open June 14 on Broadway.
