Christopher Tierney, the main stunt performer in the Broadway production Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, fell approximately 30 feet during last night’s performance and needed to be hospitalized for minor injuries, according to the Associated Press. The accident occurred about seven minutes before the end of the show, which was then halted. “The Occupational Safety and Health Administration, Actors Equity and the New York State Department of Labor have met with the Spider-Man company today to discuss additional safety protocols. It was agreed that these measures would be enacted immediately,” the show’s spokesperson, Rick Miramontez, said in a statement. “Tomorrow’s matinee has been postponed and will be rescheduled. Tomorrow evening’s, and all subsequent performances will proceed as scheduled.”
