There’s been another injury at the beleaguered and now Taymor-less musical ‘Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark.’ From the AP via FoxNY:
NEW YORK – Is this the curse of the Spider-Woman? T.V. Carpio stepped in to replace another actress injured in Broadway’s troubled “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark.” She has now herself been sidelined after an accident.
Producers of the $65 million musical said Tuesday that Carpio was hurt last week during an onstage battle scene. She plays an evil spider woman called Arachne and will be out of the show for the next two weeks.
Carpio was elevated from a smaller role when her predecessor, Natalie Mendoza, pulled out. She suffered a concussion in December when her head was hit offstage by rope.
There’s a behind the scenes ‘Phantom of the Opera’ groove going down with this thing. Today it’s yet another member of the cast. At some point it’ll be Goblin Gliders crashing down on top of the audience. Almost as if… wait for it… the Universe doesn’t want this show to happen.
