A spokesman for the troubled show called it an "emotional and exciting moment for the cast and crew."

Christopher Tierney is back in action.

The actor returned to rehearsals for Broadway's Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark Thursday — less than five months after falling 35 feet during a live performance and suffering a fractured skull, a fractured shoulder blade, four broken ribs and three broken vertebrae.

Tierney performed the same flying stunt again without incident.

Show spokesperson Rick Miramontez told USA Today it was an "emotional and exciting moment for the cast and crew."

Tierney announced last month that he planned to return despite his December accident.

"His back's fine. They've taken the bolts and the nuts and everything out," producer Michael Cohl told the New York Post then.

The $65 million show (the most expensive in Broadway's history) has been on hiatus as its script and music problems are fixed.

It begins previews on May 12 and will open again on June 14.
