Christopher Tierney Photo: Spiderman Actor Accident?

An actor was injured in an accident during a performance of the stage musical "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" in New York on Monday night.

Christopher Tierney fell onto the stage during last night's preview at the Foxwoods Theater, prompting the cancellation of the remainder of the performance.

Christopher Tierney is 31 and he fell 30 feet after a cable snapped, the fourth such accident in a month.

Where can I find Christopher Tierney's photo? What is going on in the Spiderman musical? I've been reading a lot of stories about accidents lately.

Christopher Tierney sustained broken ribs and suffered some internal bleeding as a result of falling from the platform, according to a person familiar with his medical condition.

Spider-Man is the most expensive show ever to hit Broadway, but has yet to open as the production has encountered repeated problems and injuries.

Christopher Tierney is the fourth performer to be hurt working on the Spider-man musical, which involves many complex aerial stunts.

The musical cost is $65 million, and it has been beset by a range of financial, creative and safety problems. In addition to Christopher Tierney's injury, another actor broke his wrists and yet another actor hurt his ankle.
