Broadway’s “Spiderman Turn Off the Dark” has caused yet another injury on stage. T.V. Carpio, the actress who replaced Natalie Mendoza as Arachne after she was sidelined after a concussion, was injured onstage during a battle scene last Wednesday.
“On doctor’s orders, she will be out of the show for the next two weeks. America Olivo will be performing the role of ‘Arachne’ during this time,” Rick Miramontez said.
Delayed Once Again
Spiderman Turn Off the Dark has been delayed numerous times, and is the most expensive show in the history of Broadway. Last month, the show was charged with three severe violations of workplace safety rules by the U.S. Department of Labor following the string of injuries to cast members that occurred late last year. Its latest release date of March 15th was postponed once again until June, as director Julie Taymor was released from her everyday responsibilities and a new staff was brought in to help with the restaging of the show.
