Dangerous Offender

In my former life theatre safety was part of my job. This story really bothers me:

Another actor hospitalized after Spider-Man accident

There’s no reason for accidents like this. The director Julie Taymor should be banned from creating anything that involves human beings as her tools. The Spider-Man accidents were serious and newsworthy but her costumes and staging for other theatre productions have caused back and knee injuries among other repetitive strain injuries. Sure, her shows look great but at what cost? If you want to see fancy effects, go to the movies where professionals can thrill the audience and keep their performers safe.

Boooooo Julie Taymore and all those that didn’t tell her “no”. Booooooo.
