Christopher Tierney is ready to to return to Spider-Man on Broadway just four months after he plummeted more than 35 feet in a stunt gone wrong.

"His back's fine. They've taken the bolts and the nuts and everything out," producer Michael Cohl tells the New York Post of the actor, who suffered a fractured skull, a fractured shoulder blade, four broken ribs and three broken vertebrae when he fell on Dec. 20.

Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark spokesman Rick Miramontez tells Playbill.com, "Christopher Tierney has been cleared by his doctors to return to the show on April 25th (Monday). The producers and entire company are thrilled with that news."

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

It's slated to open again on June 14.
