HAIRSPRAY theatre star Ashley Parker Angel took a terrifying tumble into the orchestra pit during a performance on Broadway last week (ends05Oct07).
The 26-year-old was mid-song when he tripped and fell off the stage in New York.
He says, "Fortunately, they have a net to protect the orchestra, but it was like being stuck in marshmallows.
"It was not a cool look."
Many ticket-holders couldn't get into the O2 Arena show on Tuesday night (September 19th) because they didn't bring photo ID to match their booking.
An album re-release, a new song and a documentary mark the singer's legacy this year.
The film will be the first in the Marvel Cinematic Universe led by a person of colour.
The actor plays the titular hero in the forthcoming adaptation.
