The Show Must Go On!

New York — The Broadway musical "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" will be performed as scheduled Friday night, a day after an actor playing the comic book hero was badly injured during the special effects-laden show. Producers blamed human error and the union representing actors vowed to investigate.

"Tonight's performance will go on as scheduled. The technical elements of the show are all in good working order, and we can confirm that equipment malfunction was not a factor in the incident," said Rick Miramontez, a show spokesman.

The injured actor, Daniel Curry, suffered an injury during the Thursday night performance, which was immediately halted. The actor was at Bellevue Hospital on Friday in stable condition with a serious leg injury.

Curry is a graduate of the Laguardia School of Performing Arts – the so-called "Fame" school – and appeared in an episode of "Smash" and toured with the "Man In The Mirror" Michael Jackson Tribute tour.
