Veteran director Paul Bogaev has been hired to work with U2's Bono and The Edge on the sound and arrangements for trouble-plagued Broadway musical Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark.

Show spokesman Rick Miramontez said Bogaev will be working with the U2 members on the music for the 65 million US dollar show.

Bogaev was musical director on Andrew Lloyd Webber's Starlight Express and Sunset Boulevard.

Spider-Man is set to open on March 15.

It has been delayed several times, had a main actress quit and suffered numerous accidents that have left several actors in hospital.

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.
