Injured SPIDER-MAN Actor Daniel Curry To Take Action in Court
As BroadwayWorld previously reported, last month, Daniel Curry, an actor from SPIDER-MAN: TURN OFF THE DARK was tragically injured during a performance of the accident-plagued Broadway musical. On August 15, the performance was halted and audience members sent home after a piece of equipment pinned an actor's leg underneath it, causing the injury. Now according to the Daily News, Curry is taking action in court against the show.
The 23 year-old recently submitted an emergency application to the Manhattan Supreme Court that intends to "block the mechanical device at the Foxwoods Theater from being altered until his experts can examine, photograph and test it." Curry's lawyer, Tonino Sacco, is seeking information on the computer program used to operate the lift that caused his injuries, as well as internal reports at Eight Legged Productions sent following his accident.
Spider-Man representative Rick Miramontez commented that "the electrical equipment was not a factor in Curry's accident" and that human error was to blame.
