It’s been a messy and often dangerous ride for those involved in the $65 million Spider-Man Broadway adaptation, Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark. With many of the action sequences calling for significant stunt work, multiple actors involved in the show have been injured during production and rehearsals.

Now another injury has been added to the list at a performance that took place just a few hours ago. According to various reports, the accident occurred during a sequence toward the end of the production where Spider-Man is trying to save Mary Jane as she hangs from a bridge. Either the actor playing the web-slinging superhero or his stunt double for the show fell about eight to ten feet from a platform into a pit, and equipment being used in the show fell into the audience as a result.

Many in attendance seemed to think that this was all part of the show, but it was soon realized that something was actually wrong when it was announced that the show was delayed and ultimately ended.

At the moment, little more is known of what exactly happened. The actor who fell was taken to a nearby hospital, and so far it appears that he’ll be fine.
