It's a show that has Broadway buzzing, but for all the wrong reasons, CBS News correspondent Elaine Quijano observed on "The Early Show."
"60 Minutes": A Peek At Spider-Man, The Musical
In the closing minutes of Monday night's performance, "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" once again shocked its audience after an actor portraying the superhero took a terrible fall.
It's believed that one of the tethers holding the stunt double broke -- and he fell more than 30 feet to the pit below.
It's just the latest in a string of accidents and injuries that have plagued the show in recent weeks.
In a little over a month, one actress suffered a concussion, while two other actors were injured during a flying sequence, one breaking his wrist.
After last night's accident, one blog was flooded by outraged fans.
"This is just getting silly. Time to shut this down," one comment said.
Another fan wrote, "This show is doomed. I think theatergoers should stay away."
The actor who fell was rushed from the theater to cheers. The show's producers say he suffered only minor injuries.
Quijano added the show's opening last week was delayed four weeks for creative changes.
