“Spider-Man” dancer seriously injured in fall from “high distance”


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: How is Spider-Man supposed to swing from the rooftops of Manhattan for his much-ballyhooed Broadway debut if both his wrists are broken?

That’s the latest problem facing “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark,” as one of the performers who doubles as the web slinger fell from a self-described “high distance” during a flying stunt and shattered both his wrists.

“Well, i dont know what im allowed to say. but something went wrong and i fell on my hands from a high distance,” dancer Kevin Aubin posted on his Facebook page, according to the NY Times. “It happens, no one to blame. I’m alive and ok.”

A spokesperson for the show later confirmed the report. The Times says lead actor and singer Reeve Carney plays Spider-Man and his alter ego, Peter Parker, but “professionally trained dancers in Spider-Man costumes do much of the character’s flying during the show.”

It was during one of these stunts that Aubin was injured. It’s yet another hiccup fro a production that has faced multiple obstacles on its way to the stage. Aubin seems okay with the outcome, though he’ll likely be sidelined for some time.

Meanwhile, the show must go on. “Spider-Man,” directed by Julie Taymor with music by Bono and The Edge, opens at the Foxwoods Theater on Broadway on Nov. 14.
