Bono to Return to SPIDER-MAN Tonight for First Time Since January
Rumors are circulating that Bono, who wrote the music and lyrics for SPIDER-MAN: TURN OFF THE DARK, will attend tonight's performance of the show. Bono will likely analyze the musical's progress since he last attended the production to lend his help in January. As for whether the producers will delay the opening of the show yet again, spokesperson Rick Miramontez, said that, "all decisions are made as a group."
Featuring direction by Tony® Award-winner Julie Taymor (The Tempest, Across The Universe, The Lion King), music and lyrics by 22-time Grammy® Award-winners Bono and The Edge, a book co-written by Taymor and Glen Berger (Underneath The Lintel) and one of the most iconic title characters of all time, SPIDER-MAN Turn Off The Dark is the most ambitious production ever undertaken on Broadway and finds astonishingly fresh ways to tell a story inspired by over 40 years of Marvel comic books. The show follows the story of teenager Peter Parker, whose unremarkable life is turned upside-down when he's bitten by a genetically altered spider and wakes up the next morning clinging to his bedroom ceiling. This bullied science-geek suddenly endowed with incredible powers soon learns, however, that with great power comes great responsibility as villains put both his physical strength and strength of character to the test. SPIDER-MAN Turn Off The Dark will thrill audiences through a unique entertainment experience in ways never-before-dreamed-possible in live theater.
