‘Spider Man: Turn off the Dark’ cited for Federal Safety Violations

‘Spider Man: Turn off the Dark’ cited for Federal Safety Violations
Spider Man’s been hunted down by the Green Goblin, the Lizard and even the Venom, but the webbed superhero hasn’t been challenged by what could possibly its most powerful foe – the US government. At least up until now.

The show has already been plagued by a number of different problems ranging from rewrites and delays to actor injuries, the last of which has resulted in the musical and its production company being issued with 3 citations for workplace safety standard violations, by OSHA.

The troubled musical, which has cost nearly $65 million to finance, now faces a fine of $12,600. The citations were issued because of injuries that were caused to 4 separate actors during performances that began towards the end of last year. The most notable incident being in November, wherein cast member Natalie Mendozaand suffered a concussion and in December, wherein Christopher Tierney fell into the orchestra oit and fractured his skull and broke a few ribs.
