"Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" is the biggest and most expensive production in Broadway history. It also appears to be one of its most cursed.

In the closing minutes of Monday night's performance, "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" once again shocked its audience after an actor portraying the superhero took a terrible fall.

It's believed that one of the tethers holding the stunt double broke -- and he fell more than 30 feet to the pit below.

It's just the latest in a string of accidents and injuries that have plagued the show in recent weeks.

In a little over a month, one actress suffered a concussion, while two other actors were injured during a flying sequence, one breaking his wrist.

After last night's accident, one blog was flooded by outraged fans.

"This is just getting silly. Time to shut this down," one comment said.

Another fan wrote, "This show is doomed. I think theatergoers should stay away."

This is why Spiderman was all CGI in the movies. A human performing these stunts is illogical
