Let’s hope there’s a doctor in the house the next time Spidey swings on Broadway. A performance of Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark on Broadway went awry this week after a stuntman fell 30ft. and left the theater in an ambulance.
Firefighters were called to the Foxwoods Theatre in Manhattan at about 10:45 PM Monday after 31-year-old actor Christopher Tierney fell near the end of the latest preview performance. He was taken to Bellevue Hospital with minor injuries, New York Police officials say. Tierney fell during a scene in which the webslinger rescues love interest, Mary Jane Watson, but managed to land on his feet, witnesses tell The Associated Press.
The show has suffered a number of setbacks since it began preview performances in November, with a series of on-set accidents and concerns about cast safety forcing producers to push back the launch date until January. On Friday, Michael Cohn, producer of the record-setting $65 million stageshow revealed that the big-budget production, would be delayed once more, opening in February instead.
The musical’s new launch date will not only give Spider-Man performers an opportunity to perfect their stunts, but will give the musical’s composers, U2 rockers Bono and The Edge, time to tweak its soundtrack. The guys have had to skip previews due to tour commitments in Australia.
Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark will now open on Feb. 7.
