Bono and the Edge Will Sit Through Every Spider-Man Preview Performance

EW reports: “Julie [Taymor] and Bono and Edge … will be in the theater next week and for all of the preview performances leading up to the opening night working on the show.” Why? Not exactly clear, actually, although EW kind of hints it may have to do with the fine-tuning the show is apparently still undergoing. Our theory: Julie and Bono and Edge will be in the theater to prove that, despite the rash of serious injuries plaguing the production, attending this show will not do you bodily harm. Although if a stunt person does go careening into the two most important members of U2 at some point next week — well, that'd really be something. [PopWatch/EW]
