Injuries & Delays Mount For Spider Man

How bad have things been for the Broadway musical Bono and The Edge of U2 composed music for? So bad that a NPR program host recently joked that anyone interested in touring Chernobyl, the the nuclear plant in the Ukrainian region of the Soviet Union that had a catastrophic failure in 1986, but unwilling to spring for the airfare could consider seeing a disaster of similar proportions by getting tickets to Spider Man.  What has already been an expensive and problem riddled production suffered another setback Monday (12/20) when a cast member landed in a New York hospital after reportedly falling more than 20' during a Foxwoods Theatre preview performance.  Already nearly a year past its anticipated opening, the official opening of Spider Man: Turn Off The Dark was recently pushed back again - from January to February.
While the actor that fell was not identified, an account someone attending the preview gave to CNN suggests it was one of the stunt doubles for the title role. Late last month, leading role actress Natalie Mendoza was injured when she was struck in the head by a large rope backstage.
