“Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark” will go on as scheduled Friday, while a dancer remains in the hospital following a foot injury sustained during Thursday’s performance.

Daniel Curry, one of nine performers who play Spider-Man, became caught in stage equipment shortly after 9 p.m. Thursday and suffered “heavy leg trauma,” according to a fire department spokesman. The performance was halted, and the rest of the show was canceled.

Mr. Curry, an actor and dancer who has been part of the production since November 2010, is in stable condition, said Rick Miramontez, a spokesman for the production.

“The technical elements of the show are all in good working order, and we can confirm that equipment malfunction was not a factor in the incident,” he said. “Our thoughts are with Daniel and his family.”

The accident stirred memories of a series of injuries in 2010 that delayed the production’s opening, including an accident in which performer Kevin Aubin broke both wrists after crashing to the stage during an aerial flip.

Mr. Miramontez said Mr. Curry was not flying when he was hurt. The accident occurred at the top of Act 2, a moment in which there are no aerial stunts or extreme movement of scenery, Mr. Miramontez said.

Actors’ Equity Association, the union that represents Mr. Curry, is investigating the accident, union spokeswoman Maria Somma said.
