Spider-Man Musical Loses Lead Actress

It was really only a matter of time before Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark was faced with a more traditional theater disaster - One of its leads leaving the production. Natalie Mendoza, the actress who played Arachne, has already performed for the final time.

Mendoza's last performance came December 20th, and she has been on doctor-prescribed voice rest since then. According to The New York Times, her exit agreement may be officially announced as early as today, and it's believed that her departure comes because of the safety concerns surrounding the show; Mendoza was one of the many performers to be hurt during production, receiving a concussion during the November 28th performance.
