T.V. Carpio, who replaced Natalie Mendoza in the role of the villain Arachne, is the latest to be injured in a Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark preview performance. Mendoza left the show after being hit in the head by a rope, and Carpio suffered what The New York Times deemed a neck injury in a climactic battle scene with Peter Parker. This one was not a high-flying aerial sequence, at least. The latest in a litany of injuries happened while the show is being overhauled by incoming writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and director Philip William McKinley, in anticipation of a June 14 opening. The show has received state and federal violations after the accidents and was blasted by critics who reviewed despite the $65 million budget production pushing back its opening curtain again and again.
