“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.
