Broadway’s currently previewing Spider-Man: Turn off The Dark has been plagued with so much bad press and rotten luck (and possibly hubris) that they should win international kudos if they manage to limp to opening night, let alone to triumph.
Last night, an actor fell during a complicated stunt in the show and was rushed to the hospital as the audience sat, horrified.
In the most poignant twist of all, a Spider-Man actress tweeted that we should all pray for the guy–and she’s the one who just got a concussion in the show!
Should they cut their losses before someone dies from all this? (And I don’t mean of boredom.)
