U2's Spider-Man Musical Appears To Be Cursed
The accident is the latest in a series of debacles that have plagued the musical. Injuries have previously befallen three other actors, including Natalie Mendoza, who plays Spider-Man's evil love interest, Arachne. During the show's first preview, Mendoza was hit in the head by a rope and suffered a concussion, which sidelined her for two weeks. In addition, money woes and massive costs have all but insured the show will incur losses totaling millions.
On Friday, lead producer Michael Cohl announced for the second time that the official opening for the musical would be pushed back, this time from Jan. 11 to Feb. 7. "The creative team is implementing truly exciting changes throughout the preview process," Cohl said. "Due to some unforeseeable setbacks, most notably the injury of a principal cast member, it has become clear that we need to give the team more time to fully execute their vision."
