The Aug. 15 performance of the technically elaborate Broadway musical was stopped when Curry's foot was caught in one of the mechanical stage lifts shortly after 9 PM. The performance was canceled, and Curry was taken to Bellevue Hospital in serious condition, according to a FDNY report.
Curry made his Broadway debut in the production.
Representatives for the production confirmed to Playbill.com that Spider-Man would resume performances Aug. 16.
"Following last night's accident at Spider-Man Turn Off The Dark, Daniel Curry remains in the hospital in stable condition having sustained an injury to his foot," show spokesperson Rick Miramontez said in a statement. "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. Our thoughts are with Daniel and his family."
"Acknowledging that theatre can be an inherently dangerous profession as technology continues to challenge the boundaries of creativity, and because of the technical difficulties and challenges in Spider-Man, the show has worked hard to have safety protocols in place," the statement continued. "Equity continues to monitor, investigate and actively follow up on all areas of safety and developments in the area of technology in this and all productions."
Shortly after Spider-Man began previews in 2010, cast member Christopher Tierney was injured when he fell from a raised platform into a pit in the stage of the Foxwoods Theatre. Several other actors endured injuries during the lengthy preview period.
