ANOTHER ‘SPIDER-MAN’ MISHAP: Injury sidelines Broadway actress

Has the Arachne role become the Curse of the Spider-Woman?

T.V. Carpio, the actress currently starring in the Broadway production of “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark,” was injured onstage last week and will be sidelined until early April, show spokesman Rick Miramontez said today in a statement.

Miramontez said in the statement: “T.V. Carpio sustained an injury on Wednesday, March 16 during an onstage battle scene with a fellow actor. On doctor's orders, she will be out of the show for the next two weeks.”

The production’s first Arachne, Natalie Mendoza, pulled out of “Spider-Man” in January after sustaining a show-related concussion last December. Five “Spider-Man” performers have been injured since last fall.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, America Olivo is inheriting the role while Carpio is out.

“Turn Off the Dark” — the most expensive production in Broadway history at $65-million-and-counting — recently relieved Tony-winning director Julie Taymor of day-to-day duties and postponed opening night till June.
