She tells Kurt Andersen what went wrong on Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark and how she reinvented A Midsummer Night’s Dream in a new production off-Broadway. We look back on the year in culture: from Beyoncé to Miley to Macbeth. And just four years out of Juilliard, the actor Adam Driver (Girls, Inside Llewyn Davis) has arrived as Hollywood’s new star.
