Twitter is being flooded with messages from audience members tonight at SPIDER-MAN, with word that an actor fell during the middle of Act 2 when a cable snapped. The show was first put on hold, and then cancelled as ambulances arrived on the scene. There is no word at the moment on who was injured, how severely, or what affect this will have on future performances.
We've reached out to the production for official word, you can follow what's being said on Twitter here and here in the meantime.
Some audience reports are starting that it appears a cable snapped and an actor fell more than a story after MJ (played by Jennifer Damiano) descended into the floor at approximately 10:40pm. The cable that was attached to his back was reported to have appeared to have either snapped or come undone as he was seen falling and the cable snapped backwards out and off to the side. Audience members reported screaming, followed by a call for 911, at which point the show was stopped and the house lights brought up.
As previously reported, SPIDER-MAN Turn Off The Dark has delayed its opening night (previously set for January 11, 2011) to Monday, February 7. Directed by Julie Taymor and featuring a book by Julie Taymor and Glen Berger, and new music and lyrics by U2's Bono and The Edge, SPIDER-MAN Turn Off The Dark is now in previews at Broadway's Foxwoods Theatre (213 West 42nd Street).
