The Broadway musical "Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark" has been issued two safety violations by New York state labor officials.

A state official confirmed Sunday that the citations stem from accidents that took place last year.

One involved an actor who fell more than 20 feet during a performance. The other was related to two performers who were injured while rehearsing a stunt on a catapult.

"Spider-Man" has become Broadway's most expensive show. Originally scheduled to open Dec. 21, the show was postponed to Jan. 11 and then to Feb. 7. Now it will be March 15.
