It has been a few weeks, but there was yet again another injury on the set of “Spiderman: Turn Off the Dark”.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, actress T.V. Carpio, who plays the villain Arachne (basically, the spider that first bites Spiderman…), suffered an injury that will leave her out of the troubled Broadway production for two weeks.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â A spokesman for the show said:
“T.V. Carpios 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.”
Broadwayworld.com described the injury as “whiplash.”
This isn’t the first time the role was plagued with injury.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Natalie Mendoza, who had previous played the role of Arachne, dropped out in January about a month after sustaining a concussion when a piece of equipment hit her on the head backstage.
Carpio, who was named her replacement, is the fifth actress to be injured since last fall.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â (And you could search Spiderman on this site, and find links to the many, many articles written about the other injuries…)
America Olivo will be performing the role of ‘Arachne’ during the the time that Carpio is out of commission.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â I have a feeling that she’s a little nervous…wouldn’t you be…?
