NY Cites 'Spider-Man' Producers for Safety Lapses

NEW YORK (AP) - New York state labor officials have issued two
safety violations to the producers of the Broadway musical 'Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark.'

A state official confirmed Sunday that the citations were issued for a trio of accidents that injured performers.

In December, actor Christopher Tierney plunged off a platform, and authorities determined his safety tether hadn't been properly anchored.

The other citation involved two actors hurt while rehearsing a stunt with a stage out of position.

The official spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly.

No fines have been assessed in connection with the citations, but state labor officials will be conducting unannounced inspections.

The violations were first reported by The New York Times.
