Natalie Mendoza Makes Her Spider-Man Exit Official


The news was already out about the concussed Natalie Mendoza leaving Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, but now the show has released its official statement confirming that fact. In the statement, Mendoza says, "It has been a difficult decision to make, but I regret that I am unable to continue on ‘Spider-Man’ as I recover from my injury. I wish Julie and the cast and crew every success with this production." Julie Taymor adds: "Natalie is a talented performer. We’ve appreciated her contributions to the show and we wish her all the best.” Well, that was anticlimactic. More veiled anger next time, please! [ArtsBeat/NYT]
