Huffington Post - over 3 years
NEW YORK — The hit Broadway musical "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" is losing its longtime superhero but producers are holding open casting calls for anyone who wants to don the red and blue suit. Reeve Carney, who has been playing the musical's title character and his alter ego Peter Parker since the show began previews in late 2010, will leave Sept. 15 and two casting calls will be held next month to find his replacement, as well as a future actress to play Mary Jane. The casting calls will be in New York on Aug. 19 at Stage 48 & Sky-Lounge and in Los Angeles on Aug.12 at the Hollywood United Methodist Church. Those auditioning are asked to sing a rock song a capella that shows of their range. "Hopefuls should be males in their late teens to early 20s of any ethnicity.

A stuntman who claims he suffered a concussion, whiplash and two holes in his knees while performing as the comic book hero in Broadway's "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" has asked producers to turn over any relevant information as he weighs pursuing a negligence lawsuit. The stuntman, Richard Kobak, claims in a series of papers filed earlier this year in state Supreme Court that he suffered the leg injuries in 2010 while filling in for another injured stuntman at the most expensive show in Broadway history. He alleges that the rigging he used for the show's aerial acrobatics wasn't recalibrated for him and, as a result, he made 70 hard landings on stage during performances and rehearsals. He says the hard landings created a 1.4-millimeter hole in his right knee and a 9-millimeter hole in his left knee. He also alleges that a computer program controlling one of his jumps from a balcony sent him flying into a wall on April 5, 2011. He says he suffered two herniated ...
