WILL BE READY TO HIT BROADWAY NEXT
THIS YEAR






Bono and EDGE have been working with director JULIE TAYMOR — who won a Tony for her work on The Lion King — and scriptwriter GLENN BERGER.

Speaking for the first time about the project, guitar lord The Edge has revealed: “It is happening. We’ve written a lot of the songs at this point.

“It’s in a pretty good state, and I hope it’ll open this year. We’re not sure where in the world, but most likely it will be in New York.”

He told Q Magazine he and pal Bono have always hoped to write a musical and have also been involved in the show’s plot and dialogue.

He said: “The overall story was really Julie working with Glenn, and Bono and myself riding shotgun with the odd idea here and there — as they do for the songs.”

The Axeman also revealed the show won’t have a full orchestra, just up to 20 musicians — string players, brass, some woodwind. He added: “The core will be a rock ’n’ roll band.”
