This will be the songwriters’ first time witnessing the full production, as they have been tied up in touring with U2 and other commitments since previews for the show began in November. This may have been for the best, as it means they were spared the various mishaps that have plagued the superhero musical. Hopefully they will emerge from these shows unscathed.
