Bono's New Broadway Effort Costs Millions
Spider-Man, the new Broadway show that U2 frontman Bono is scoring, is currently working on a budget of $40 million — making it most expensive theater production in history, according to reports. And the buck doesn't stop there, it'll cost $1 million to put on each week. The budget will hopefully be lowered to $35 million but will take 8,000 years for it to actually break even, the New York Post reported today.
The show's director is Julie Taymor (known for Across the Univers and the musical version of The Lion King) and will open next year.
