Christopher Tierney is set to return to 'Spider-Man.'

Christopher Tierney, the Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark ensemble member who suffered injuries after falling from an onstage platform during the musical's December 20 performance, will return to the production on April 25, according to the Tri-City Herald. The show recently began a three-week-long hiatus to retool the musical under the supervision of new director Phillip William McKinley.

"His back's fine," lead producer Michael Cohl said in an interview with the paper. "They've taken the bolts and the nuts and everything out."

Spider-Man marks the Broadway debut for Tierney, who has toured with Movin' Out and appeared in the Toronto production of Dirty Dancing. He also appeared in original Spider-Man director Julie Taymor's 2007 movie musical Across the Universe.

Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark began performances at the Foxwoods Theatre on November 28. The show will resume performances May 12 and is scheduled to officially open on June 14.
