Last night I went to a talk hosted by Broadway god Jordan Roth with Bono and The Edge. These two rockstars are truly amazing people. They were charming and smart and have contributed so much to the world both musically and culturally. The talk mainly focused on round two of their play Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, which has been completely reworked due to the numerous problems the play had months back. I wish Bono and The Edge talked a little more about their humanitarian work, but overall it was interesting to hear how writing music for theatre compares and contrasts with their past work, and how the overall story of Spider-Man relates to their personal lives. Bono and The Edge are defiantly creative dudes who live incredible lives. The talk was well attended, even Salman Rushdie was there, and fingers crossed that the opening of the play tonight goes smoothly.
