The most recent performer to be harmed while working on Broadway’s “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark” is contradicting the production’s claims regarding his injuries. Actor Daniel Curry has filed papers in Manhattan Supreme Court alleging that an equipment malfunction was to blame for an Aug. 15 accident that found Curry’s foot caught in a hydraulic lift during a performance. Producers for the show have said the accident was a result of human error.
According to the filing, Curry, a dancer in the musical, suffered “severe and permanent bodily injury as a result of a lift machine that malfunctioned.” The papers claim that Curry suffered fractures to his leg and foot, which resulted in surgeries and amputations. The filing is regarded as a preliminary step before a possible civil complaint.
