Tuesday, February 22, 2011

The ongoing saga of the $65 million Broadway musical "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" continues, this time with tweaks to the score. Paul Bogaev, a veteran director will help improve the music written by U2's Bono and The Edge.

Bogaev was nominated for a Tony for "Bombay Dreams" and was musical director for Andrew Lloyd Webber's "Sunset Boulevard" and "Starlight Express."

He has worked with rock stars Phil Collins for "Tarzan" and Elton John on "Aida."

After many delays, the musical is expected to open on March 15.
