t.v. carpio injured - yes, another one - on spider-man musical

Damn. This show can't catch a break. The producers of Broadway's troubled Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark musical announced this week that actress T.V. Carpio, who plays the villainess Arachne, has been sidelined with an injury: Another Injury Rocks 'Spider-Man' Broadway Musical.

Ms. Carpio was reportedly hurt last week during an onstage battle scene, and will be out of the show for the next two weeks. At this point, with all the setbacks and injuries and firings and accidents, it's not even funny anymore. This is the most dangerous show on Broadway.
The injury-prone Broadway musical "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" has temporarily lost another cast member after the show's lead actress was hurt performing an onstage battle scene, according to a spokesman.

T.V. Carpio, who plays Arachne, will be out for two weeks, according to Rick Miramontez, a spokesman for the show. Miramontez said Carpio was injured March 16 while performing the scene with another actor. The spokesman did not say specifically how the cast member was injured.

Understudy America Olivo will perform the role during Carpio's absence, Miramontez said.
Who in the cast hasn't been injured yet? Carpio herself stepped into the role of Arachne after Natalie Mendoza suffered a concussion when a piece of equipment hit her in the head backstage. This thing is a $65 million disaster. More here: Another Broadway Spider-Man cast member injured.
