'Spider-Man' Review: I'm Buggin'!

Musto's verdict on the retooled musical

At that point, some Broadway type jumped me and moaned, "Those poor underage kids who were forced to sing Memphis!" In tears, I fled to the O&M p.r. company's party at the Carlyle, where I came face to face with Bono, of all people. And he was nice! I told him that he and the Edge were fun on the Tonys—well, they were—and he said, "Was it OK? It's sometimes better when you're out of your depth. It's a completely different world. It's fun and frightening." The guy isn't bad. Nix the Adam and the Ants idea.

Wow, such a humble and authentic note from Bono. How refreshing. It helps salve his spurts of pomposity on the global activism "stage" a little, and helps me remember October, War and so many other albums and songs that can only sound like U2. Cheers, to him. It'd be great to hear things like this from any performer / artist out there, instead of keeping to publicist's talking points. Humility is good. Doubt can be great!

NPH sang that Broadway is "not JUST for gays anymore." Big difference MM.
