Spider-Man Musical to Undergo Poorly Timed Safety Inspection

103988001 Spider Man Musical to Undergo Poorly Timed Safety InspectionThe New York State Department of Labor will visit the Spider-Man musical today to inspect the safety precautions for the high-flying stunts featured in the high-budget show, The Times reports.

Though the paper emphasizes that this visit had nothing to do with the two actors who were injured using the play’s slingshot-like aerial propulsion method, it does remind us that this happened. Moreover, it was The Times that reported those injuries.

The article also notes that Actors’ Equity is concerned with the “unsafe” proximitiy of two of the play’s sequences.

Labor departments and unions? It’s enough to make you miss the days when The Post was the one leading the Spider-Man schadenfreude campaign.
