Daniel Curry
An actor was hurt during the evening performance of 'Spider-Man.'

Performer Daniel Curry was reportedly injured during the second act of the August 15 evening performance of Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark at Broadway's Foxwoods Theatre, according to The New York Times. The show was stopped a little after 9 PM and the audience was sent home.

"The performance was immediately halted and the actor was taken to the hospital where he is receiving medical attention," production spokesperson Rick Miramontez told FOX News.

A native of Minneapolis, Minnesota, Curry is a swing in Spider-Man. His other credits include dancing in the tour of Man in the Mirror - A Tribute to Michael Jackson and MTV's VMA promo with recording artist, Ne-Yo. He trained at LaGuardia School of Performing Arts, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater and Children's Theatre Co.

NBC news reports that the FDNY was on the scene to assist "when equipment somehow pinned an actor's leg backstage." The actor was reportedly taken to Bellevue Hospital in "serious condition."

This is the latest in a series of accidents that have occurred at the high-flying hit show: original Arachne Natalie Mendoza (who ended up exiting the production) sustained an injury during the first preview, T.V. Carpio, another Arachne, was sidelined after an onstage mishap, former cast member Joshua Kobak sued the production for his alleged performance-related injuries, and ensemble member Christopher W. Tierney was seriously hurt when he fell from an onstage platform during the show's December 20, 2010 performance. Tierney returned to the production, which was reworked to include stronger safety procedures, five months later.
