The New York Times reports that the director, who recently spoke to over 1,000 attendants of the TED2011 conference, revealed that she is "in the crucible and the fire of transformation" as the show continues to evolve.
"Anyone who creates knows - when it's not quite there," she said.
"Where it hasn't quite become the phoenix or the burnt char. And I am right there."
Taymor went on to praise her collaborators - including the production's cast and crew - and insisted that she will not give up on working towards improving the musical.
"I am in the crucible right now. It is my trial by fire. It's my company's trial by fire. We have survived because our theme song is 'Rise Above'," she explained.
"It's right there in the palm of my hands. In all of my company's hands. I have beautiful collaborators. We as collaborators only get there all together. I know you understand that. You stay there going forward and you see this extraordinary thing right in front of your eyes."
Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark has faced several issues since its conception, including injuries, alleged safety violations and bad reviews from critics.
It was recently suggested that the show may be delayed for a sixth time.
