T.V. Carpio couldn’t stop raving to OK! about working on Broadway’s Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark when she walked the red carpet Tuesday night in New York at the premiere of Limitless, but some troubling news about the musical she stars in would get announced just an hour later.
The $65 million dollar film will be overhauled and close for two to three weeks, according to the New York Times. T.V. was still in the theatre at the premiere of Limitless, which she stars in alongside Robert DeNiro and Bradley Cooper, when the news broke Tuesday night about the production’s shutdown.
“Basically you live in the theatre, I don’t see sunlight very much but you get to do what you love so I’m not complaining,” T.V. told OK! earlier in the night. “It’s so much fun! I get to use all the things that I love. There’s movement, there’s singing, there’s acting.”
T.V. assumed the role of Arachne in early January replacing Natalie Menodoza when the actress left the show after suffering a concussion when she was hit in the head by a piece of production equipment during a preview show. It was just one of multiple injuries on the Spiderman set.
“Obviously I was really grateful for the opportunity but also sad to see one of our own go,” Carpio told OK! of taking over for Mendoza. “My contract is until September so we’ll see what happens after that.”
It is the third official opening delay for the production, which was scheduled to open March 15.
