Injured SPIDER-MAN Cast Member Thanks Friends for Support at WEB OF LOVE Benefit
Broadway's Daniel Curry, appearing for the first time since his injury during a performance SPIDER-MAN: TURN OFF THE DARK this August -- when his leg was pinned by a piece of equipment backstage -- thanked friends, family and colleagues tonight, October 21, at the "Web of Love" fundraiser hosted in his honor at the Nuyorican Poet's Cafe in New York City.
"Wow -- I really want to say thank you to everyone for coming out tonight and showing your love," he said. Cast members told the Times that Curry's recovery "had been slow and challenging and that his future mobility remained unclear."

Broadway's Robert Cuccioli and Christina DeCicco hosted the evening. Among the performers were SPIDER-MAN's Justin Matthew Sargent and Rebecca Faulkenberry, singing SPIDER-MAN's "High Enough". Kyle Post and Joey Taranto performed "I Will Never Leave You" from SIDE SHOW.
An auction also raised proceeds for Curry and his family. Among the items were two orchestra seats to the Met Opera's RIGOLETTO, as well as tickets to PIPPIN and KINKY BOOTS -- all three featuring a backstage tour with a star from each show, artwork and more.
