Spider-Man becomes the most dangerous musical of the year

Julie Taymor's Broadway adaptation of the Spider-Man franchise, "Turn Off The Dark" spent most of its inception and run in 2010 with nothing but trouble. The production cost $65 million to put together and was frequently postponed due to set malfunctions and staff injuries. By the end of the year, four actors were injured, including one actress with a concussion and a stunt double with broken ribs and internal bleeding. This is why people don't really dive from the Empire State Building to save comely redheads.
