NEW YORK (AP) - Director Julie Taymor (TAY'-mor) is giving high
marks to U2's Bono and the Edge for their work on the new Broadway
production "Spider-man: Turn Off the Dark."
The pair wrote the songs for the musical. They previewed a tune
from the show on ABC's "Good Morning America" via satellite on
Friday, performed by the band Carney at the Hudson Theatre.
Taymor says the pair were integral in creating the characters in
the musical. She also says the songs don't all have a U2 stamp but
draw from a variety of musical genres.
The show will open in December.
