Actor hurt during Broadway's 'Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark' show

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

An actor in the Broadway show "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" was hurt during Thursday night's show. The performer was apparently pinned under a piece of equipment and suffered leg trauma.

The performance was stopped and the actor, Daniel Curry, 23, was taken to the hospital, said Rick Miramontez, a spokesman for the production. Cruz was listed in serious but stable condition at Bellevue Hospital on Friday.

Friday evening's show was scheduled to go on.

"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," Miramontez said on Friday. "Our thoughts are with Daniel and his family."

The production, which has been a huge box office draw, has had its share of drama: Several shows have had to be stopped because of equipment problems; several cast members and stunt doubles have suffered injuries in rehearsals and shows, the production's opening was delayed several times because of problems and story revamps, the budget ballooned, and original director Julie Taymor sued the production after she was fired during previews.

    Times Square characters want to be taken seriously and want their tips. The mostly immigrant workers are now called the Association of Artists United for a Smile and are fighting to protect their jobs, in light of a recent crackdown. Jorge Duran says he makes about $150 a day in tips dressing up as the Statue of Liberty. He says he stands around for hours, sweating inside a costume, and says it is annoying and unfair if he poses for a good picture and gets nothing.
