The troubled Broadway musical "Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark" is bringing in a veteran music director to help with the show's sound and arrangements.

A spokesman for the show says Paul Bogaev will work with U2's Bono and The Edge to improve the quality of some of the music performances for the $65 million show.

The Tony-nominated Bogaev has a history of working with rock musicians, including with Phil Collins on "Tarzan" and Elton John on "Aida."

The news comes just after the show denied published reports that a co-director was being brought in to assist director Julie Taymor.

After many delays, Spider-Man is set to open March 15th.
