Jason Lindahl, a Broadway video technician, who worked on both Spider-Man Turn Off The Dark and Ghost the Musical, was found dead in the Hudson River on Thursday.
He’d disappeared from his Astoria apartment on Sunday, just days after sending e-mails that were of a “suicidal nature” to his friends. At his home, police also found a handwritten suicide note.
According to his Twitter account, which hadn't been updated in months, he was "the dude sitting in the theater behind the wall of computer monitors."
Our hearts go out to Lindahl’s family as they deal with this.

That'll probably be better than the actual musical, LOL!!
Filmmaker Jacob Cohl, son of lead producer Michael Cohl, had his camera recording EVERYTHING backstage! Everything from day one of rehearsals to the June 2011 opening of Spiderman: Turn Off the Dark.
And if Uve been in the loop, the U know there was lotsa shiz hittin' that fan, ha!!
But of course ex-director Julie Taymor is suing the producers, trying to make sure any footage of her never sees the light of day.
But they've answered her lawsuit with a hissing response:

It seems like they find her claims HIGHlarious as they counter sue with their own.
In their legal docs, they state:
