Spider-Man musical co-writer has book deal


NEW YORK (AP) - The Spider-Man saga is going from the stage to the page.

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 on 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.
