NEW YORK — Is this the curse of the Spider-Woman?
T.V. Carpio stepped in to replace another actress injured in Broadway's troubled "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark." She has now herself been sidelined after an accident.
Producers of the $65 million musical said Tuesday that Carpio was hurt last week during an onstage battle scene. She plays an evil spider woman called Arachne and will be out of the show for the next two weeks.
Carpio was elevated from a smaller role when her predecessor, Natalie Mendoza, pulled out. She suffered a concussion in December when her head was hit offstage by rope.
The show is the most expensive in Broadway history. It's being reworked after director Julie Taymor was fired. Its opening has been delayed and several actors have been injured.
