“Spider-Man” Broadway player exits ICU

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Finally, some good news on the “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark” front.

Christopher Tierney, the performer who plunged nearly 30-feet during a production of the show earlier this month, has exited the Intensive Care Unit. Tierney suffered a skull fracture, cracked vertebrae and four broken ribs, according to reports.

Isabel Keating, a “Spider-Man” cast member, told CBS News that Tierney “has his enormous spirit pouring out of him. I haven’t seen him. But I hear that he’s doing great and he’s walking.”

As was reported, Tuerney hopes to return to the show once he’s physically able.

He won’t find Natalie Mendoza there. The Broadway actress quit the show recently after suffering a concussion. The show’s high-flying stunts have raised safety issues with the cast and crew, though director Julie Taymor has been working behind the scenes to correct mistakes and ensure her cast’s survival.

However, negative press hasn’t hurt ticket sales, according to CBS News.

“Theatergoers are still packing in for sold-out previews in the run up to Opening Night,” the news outlet says. And one patron exiting the show told CBS, “I love the theater. … This is the best thing I’ve seen in years, if not forever.”
