The current cover of New Yorker magazine comments on the multiple injuries that have plagued the new musical Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark, which is currently in previews at the Foxwoods Theatre.

In an article in the magazine titled "Look Out!," Michael Schulman writes, "New Yorkers excel at Schadenfreude. They love to watch people fall, whether in public life (Eliot Spitzer, Jeff Zucker) or on a snowy patch of sidewalk. When hubris or large sums of money are involved, all the better. In the case of 'Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark'—at sixty-five million dollars, the most expensive Broadway musical ever staged—those elements have been compounded by death-defying aerial stunts, which, despite safety tuneups by the director, Julie Taymor, have resulted in a stream of ghastly headlines..."
