“Spider-Man” actress reportedly bowing out


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Just when it seemed like “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark” had turned a corner and was heading for brighter Broadway memories, the show is poised to take another major hit.

That’s because Natalie Mendoza, who plays a major villain named Arachne in the production, is about to jump ship, according to a report in the New York Times. Though Mendoza declined interview requests and her rep remained silent, two sources who spoke on conditions of anonymity said that Mendoza – who suffered a concussion during one of the show’s earliest performances – has been hammering out an exit strategy.

“The producers have forbid public comments, given that lawyers and others are still fine-tuning the language to explain Ms. Mendoza’s departure, an artistic loss and embarrassing blow to the production,” Patrick Healy writes.

An official statement from the show is expected sometime Tuesday.

According to the Times, much of the show’s second act revolves around Arachne, who sings the musical’s title number and five other songs. Replacing Mendoza will be critical. Just another obstacle on this production’s rocky road to opening night.
