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. Â 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. Â Oops. Â Tierney has several broken ribs and internal bleeding and is not expected to return to the show. Â I wouldn’t either, it sounds like a complete disaster.
