“Spider-Man” star opens up about Broadway injuries

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Christopher Tierney, the Broadway performer who made headlines when he plunged from great heights as part of Julie Taymor’s troubled musical “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark,” opens up about his ordeal in an exclusive interview that will air on WCBS-TV news in New York City tonight.

“The last thing I remember was, like, uh, just going, ‘Oh, God,'” Tierney says in the interview, according to the New York Post.

“I was falling, and then I saw, once I hit the darkness of the stage, I had to just turn it real quick, so I wasn’t going to fall on my head and I crashed on my back.”

Tierney recently exited the Intensive Care Unit, and continues to mend. He suffered broken ribs, a fractured skull, a bruised lung, and more.

The stuntman, who was one of four crucial players injured as the show prepares for opening night, expressed interest in rejoining the Broadway production once he’s physically able.

For now, “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark” is on track to open in February.

    Glad he’s okay but “exclusive interview” for what?! People get hurt on the job all the time. Is that a news breaking event nowadays? He doesn’t know what happened. All he knows is he’s grateful he isn’t dead or paralyzed. We don’t need an interview to find out the obvious.
