This is getting out of control!!

With several delays and numerous technical difficulties including other actors getting injured in the show's dangerous stunts, reports are coming out now that yet another actor was injured during the Spider-Man musical's first preview last Sunday.

Natalie Mendoza, who plays villainess Arachne, was struck by a rope that was holding a piece of equipment offstage and suffered a concussion. She didn't immediately report the injury to the producers or the actors' union, and even performed in the next night's performance against doctor's orders.

However, after a few days, she fell ill on Thursday and her understudy stepped in and took her place.

Responding to why Mendoza continued to perform after being injured, the musical's spokesperson said, "It was her choice, she insisted on doing it."

The New York State Dept. of Labor confirmed on Friday that it was investigating the accident, and a rep for the agency said:

"The production has explained to us the details of the accident. They also indicated that they have made changes to prevent this type of accident from happening again. We plan to follow up regularly to ensure that these modifications are adequate."

Seems like MAJOR changes need to happen for this production to continue! This is the THIRD injury on set! Actors, beware!
