NEW YORK (AP) - The trouble-plagued Broadway musical “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark” has hired a veteran director to help with the show’s sound and arrangements.

Show spokesman Rick Miramontez says Paul Bogaev (boh-GY’-ev) will be working with U2’s Bono and The Edge on the music for the $65 million show.

Bogaev was musical director on Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Starlight Express” and “Sunset Boulevard.”

“Spider-Man” is set to open March 15. It has been delayed several times, had a main actress quit and suffered numerous accidents that have left several actors hospitalized.

Bogaev won a Tony nomination in 2004 for his work on “Bombay Dreams.” He has a history of working with rock musicians who are crafting musicals, including “Tarzan” with Phil Collins and “Aida” with Elton John.
