The stunt actor who was the latest casualty of the Spider-Man musical this week is walking again! Aeralist Christopher Tierney fell 30 feet and broke his ribs while playing Spider-Man on Broadway earlier this week (the show shut down for a day as a result), but now his father says he walked for the first time yesterday. He's spending Christmas in the hospital recovering from back surgery, with his parents and brother, who says he "is expected to make a full recovery and will surely return to the stage." As for the rest of the Spider-Man cast, they're scheduled to be back on stage tonight—but ticket buyer beware.
