Another setback for the most expensive …. and most dangerous …. musical in Broadway history.
An actor on the set of Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark was injured during last night’s performance. The show was immediately halted while the actor was attended to. The unidentified cast member was taken to hospital with a serious leg injury.
Fire officials say the man’s leg got caught in equipment backstage.
The $75-million show involves complex aerial stunts. Nine different performers portray the lead character. Its Broadway run has been beset by a series of accidents that have left several actors hurt or hospitalized.
