The drama never stops for the Broadway version of Spider-Man, but unfortunately it’s not the kind of drama caused by competent acting or a quality stage production.  The Broadway musical has been plagued with trouble since before it opened, and from the very first performance audiences have reported sub-par acting, equipment malfunctions, and now a serious accident that has injured one of the stunt doubles.

Christopher Tierney, who does the stunts for the Spider-Man character, fell 20 feet from a scaffolding during Monday’s show, due to the technical crew forgetting to fasten his harness to the scaffolding.  Oops.  Tierney has several broken ribs and internal bleeding and is not expected to return to the show.  I wouldn’t either, it sounds like a complete disaster.
