Broadway “Spider-Man” actor walking again after back surgery

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: For Christopher Tierney, it must have felt like a Christmas miracle.

The Broadway actor, who plummeted from great heights during a performance of “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark,” walked for the first time over the weekend. Tierney had back surgery, and is expecting to regain “close to full mobility,” according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Even more surprising? Tierney’s family says he’s looking forward to rejoining the show that caused his serious injuries.

“They’re eagerly awaiting his return,” the actor’s father said. “He just felt so blessed to be part of this whole creative process, and he just cannot wait to get back and perform in the show.”

That will be some time, of course. Tierney is supposed to leave the hospital today, but will recuperate in New York City. He has pins an rods in his lower back that will have to be removed as he heals.

In the meantime, “Spider-Man” implemented new safety precautions, and has been accident-free since Tierney’s plunge. The show anticipates a February opening on Broadway.
