‘Spider-Man’ to resume performances after accident
An actor from TV’s “Modern Family,” Jesse Tyler Ferguson, used sarcasm to hint at the grisly nature of the accident-prone production.
“I’m torn between wanting to see `Spiderman’ on Broadway and not wanting to see someone literally die doing musical theater,” he said.
TV personality Dave Holmes said if “Spider-man” makes it out of previews, “it will be the leading cause of death in the state of New York.”
Still, a trickle of ticket-buyers appeared at the Foxwoods box office Tuesday morning. The accident did not stop Yumeho Asai, 20, of Gifu, Japan, from buying a ticket. She is studying musical theater herself. “I’m just so interested in the technical aspects,” she said.
Justin Waldman, 17, of Toronto, hadn’t heard about the show’s accidents, but said it wouldn’t affect buying a ticket.
“I like Spider-Man and I like U2, so I think the combination of the two would be a good mix,” he said.
Associated Press writers Karen Matthews, Ula Ilnytzky and Sara Kugler Frazier, Entertainment Writer Jake Coyle and Broadcast reporter Warren Levinson contributed to this report.
