Spiderman musical an absolute disaster

Spiderman the movie was awesome. Well 1 and 2 were good, the third one was flaming dog doo. However I would say the popularity of the series probably spawned a $65 million broadway show, that just so happens to be going off without a hitch...

Christopher Tierney, the stunt actor who was injured after falling 30 feet during a performance of Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, was released from Bellevue hospital and transferred to a New York City rehab facility for inpatient rehabilitation.

On Tuesday, Tierney was able to walk with the help of a full-torso brace before his hospital discharge.

On December 20, he fell during a performance of the problem-riddled musical. His injuries included a "hairline skull fracture, four broken ribs, a bruised lung, internal bleeding and cracks in three lumbar vertebrae," according to the Associated Press.

He is one of four people connected to the $65 million Broadway show to sustain significant injuries due to the production.

Having been in a theater production or two, I can tell you that the effects, stunts and even choreography don't always go off perfectly. Somebody who thought that you could have somebody flying around on wires is an idiot.
