Bono And The Edge Hit Broadway For Ailing Spider-Man Musical
In the comic books, it’s Spider-Man who swings in to save people… but in real life Bono and The Edge of world-famous super-group [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]U2[/lastfm] will be the ones who may save Spidey! The Spider-Man musical, directed by Julie Taymor with music by Bono and The Edge, has had its share of issues on the road to opening night on Broadway. Between some… odd character and costume choices, lukewarm responses to early performances and about a dozen injuries due to the high-flying stunts, Taymor and the U2 fellas have decided to sit in on the remaining preview shows to fine tune both the show and the music.
Whether some eleventh-hour rewrites can save this musical is anyone’s guess at this point, but with opening night only a little more than a month away, it’s nice to see all involved taking such an active role in trying to make this stage show one to remember.
