Following Injury of Spider-Man Actor, Musical Brings in Record-Low Gross; Daniel Curry Still in Hospital
27 Aug 2013
Following the Aug. 15 performance of Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark, in which actor Daniel Curry sustained an onstage injury and the Broadway musical was halted, the production grossed a record low of $966,952 for the week of Aug. 19 — shy of its weekly million-dollar run cost.
For the week of Aug. 19-25, the Foxwoods Theatre, which houses the high-flying musical, was at 69.3 percent capacity. In comparison to the previous week, attendance was down 9.2 percent, and the show's weekly gross was down $58,406.
According to the New York Times, Curry, whose foot was caught in one of the mechanical stage lifts shortly after the show's second act began, is still at Bellevue Hospital — where he was taken the night of the accident — and has recently undergone a third foot surgery.
"The mobility of the foot is still in question," an anonymous executive from the Spider-Man production team told the Times.
Representatives for the production could not confirm the status of Curry to Playbill.com.
