Julie Taymor to direct 'Midsummer Night's Dream'

We haven't heard a lot about Julie Taymor since the off-stage drama that was "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark," but the director is back to lead a new production.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Taymor will direct "A Midsummer Night's Dream" at Theatre for a New Audience in Brooklyn. It's her first directing job since she departed her "Spider-Man" post in the spring of 2011. The rehabbed musical went on to become a top-seller on Broadway.

"A Midsummer Night's Dream" will begin preview performances on October 19 ahead of its scheduled opening of November 2. As the Times notes, Taymor has helmed her fair share of Shakespeare, including the films "The Tempest" (2010) and "Titus" (1999).

      I like to put ketchup on my tater tots AND my fish sticks too. Some people like that tarter sauce but I don't. Ketchup is good. We might also have garlic bread and a salad ! YUM !
