‘Spider-Man’ Actor Injured In Stage Fall, Twitter Reacts

The $65 million broadway spectacle ‘Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark’ sure has had its share of woes lately. The would-be blockbuster, directed by Julie Taymor with music by Bono, has seen budget problems and multiple safety hazards, including four on-stage injuries. On Monday Christopher Tierney, a Spider-Man stunt double, plunged 30 feet when his rope snapped, and reportedly suffered broken ribs and internal bleeding after the fall. With Tierney is still in the hospital, producers of the show say performances will resume on Wednesday.

While the injuries the actor sustained are very real, the problems plaguing this promising-yet-immensely-expensive production, and all those punny headlines about Spider-Man’s web of problems, have activated a large response from Broadway’s tweeting community.
