Rehearsals for “Spider-Man”, the musical, have begun. Reeve Carney who is to play the lead has been blown away by Bono’s on set advice.
Bono and the Edge wrote the music and lyrics for the show, “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark”. The show will open in Broadway this fall.
Carney, co-founder of the rock band Carney never dreamed he would be performing on Broadway let alone rehearing with Bono. He said “It was completely surreal sitting next to Bono in rehearsal, and having him show me how to sing the songs.”
U2’s manager, Paul McGuinness, has also announced that he has high hopes that the show will be brought to Dublin’s new Grand Canal Theatre after it takes the U.S. by storm.
