Theater critic calls 'Spider-Man' show a 'trainwreck'

New York (CNN) - The stage musical "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" will have new safety protocols when it reopens Wednesday night, following an accident in which a performer fell and suffered serious injuries during a preview, officials said. Christopher Tierney, 31, is listed in serious condition, said Bellevue Hospital spokesman Steven Bohlen.

Prior to these recent setbacks, the musical was already the most expensive Broadway show in history.

Today on American Morning, New York Post Theater and Arts Critic Michael Riedel refers to the show as  a "trainwreck" and "chaos." He explains to AM's John Roberts and Carol Costello why actors he knows involved in the show are concerned about the safety of the stunts.

    Where is your fact checking? Riedel is a GOSSIP COLUMNIST! Not a CRITIC!

    This is like calling Perez Hilton a movie and music critic. BIG DIFFERENCE!
