'Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark' Actress Leaves ShowAfter a series of on-set injuries and pushed back production dates, actress Natalie Mendoza has decided to walk away from her role as villainess Arachne in Broadway's 'Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark.'

The role, created by the show's director, Julie Taymor, was Mendoza's first part on Broadway.

The New York Times reports that the 30-year-old actress, who has been on vocal rest for over a week, will formally announce her resignation in the next few days. Lawyers and reps for the show are reportedly drawing up the terms of the actress' exit from the production in addition to planning the announcement of her departure.

The actress, who suffered a concussion during the show's first preview, was allegedly disturbed by events on the accident-plagued set.
