Just when you thought it was safe to watch a mediocre Broadway musical…
The Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark curse strikes again!
The latest victim is Matthew James Thomas, who plays Peter Parker twice a week for Reeve Carney, and reportedly sustained an unspecified injury during a scene transition backstage at the beginning of the play's second act during a matinee yesterday! He was hospitalized, and received ten stitches!
And luckily, Carney was available to fill in for Thomas for the remainder of the show!
According to publicist Rick Miramontez:
"Matthew James Thomas sustained a minor injury while offstage during today's matinee performance. He is fine, and will be back in the show for his next scheduled performance on Saturday."
Well, phew! At least it was nothing more serious!
Let's just be extra careful from now on, all right, cast and crew?
We don't want any more accidents!
Feel better, Matthew!
