Last night actor Christopher Tierney fell 30 feet off a platform during Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark and landed in the orchestra section. Audience members said that they could hear screams and sobs. See the video below and the official statement about this chilling indecent.
From the show's Facebook page:
An actor sustained an injury at tonight's performance of Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark. He fell several feet from a platform approximately seven minutes before the end of the performance, and the show was stopped. All signs were good as he was taken to the hospital for observation. We will have more news shortly.
Despite the fact that this is the fourth injury suffered during production, there is no hint the show will be canceled. The cost continues to rise above $65 million, the number of broken bones keeps adding up, and the delays have increased. No offense here Bono and The Edge, but either take out the flying scenes or pack up and cut your losses before someone is fatally hurt.
