Bono Just Got Around to Seeing Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark Last Night

So, as if you hadn't heard, Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark has been having some trouble! (Injured actors, angry actors, quitting actors, delayed start times, etc. etc.) Yet the Times is reporting that Bono, who co-wrote the music and lyrics for the show, just saw it for the first time last night. He was supposed to go to the previews in mid-November, but when those were postponed Bono had to go on tour. But Bono! If anything needed your world-saving abilities at that particular juncture, it was obviously Spider-Man. Still, you're here now, and you're going to be sitting through every preview performance (to familiarize yourself with it?), so you should have plenty of chances to put your crisis-management skills to use.
