SPIDER-MAN Cancels Flying Sequences Last Night Due to Technical Glitch; Offers Refunds
Last night's performance of SPIDER-MAN, TURN OFF THE DARK may have been a little too reminiscent of its early previews for some theatregoers.
The intricate flying sequences, which led to delays and injuries in SPIDER-MAN's unprecendented preview period, were for the most part cancelled in last night's show due to a technical glitch with one of the flying rigs that supports the stunts over the audience, according to a production source. The problem with the mechanism used to send the actors in flight through the Foxwoods was detected before the show, allegedly. The show went on as scheduled sans most of the flying, however the production offered refunds to those who wished to see the show with the flying within the next fourteen days.
