Ouch!

Apparently, being a part of the cast of the Spider-Man musical can be detrimental to your safety!

An actor and a dancer in the troubled Julie Taymor/Bono collaboration, Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark, have suffered broken bones while attempting to do the sling-shot flying technique for which the webbed superhero is most recognized!

After Kevin Aubin broke his wrists last week, another actor came forward to reveal:

“I had broken my feet on the same move a month earlier. Kevin is doing fine though and took it like a champ.”

Lead producer Michael Cohl also issued this statement regarding the matter:

“Our priority from ‘Day 1’ has always been to put safety first. We continue every day to make the running of the show a safer experience.”

Unfortunately with shows with a lot of elaborate stunts such as this, there are accidents – especially during the rehearsal time. We’re just glad nobody’s injuries were any worse, and hopefully by the time it debuts all of the kinks will be worked out!

Thoughts??
