NEW YORK, NY - A Broadway show can be a dangerous place, just ask the actors in 'Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark,' one of the most accident-prone productions ever.

The New York Times reports that tragedy has struck again, this time in 'The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time." Eight-month old "Rose" lost her life in a freak accident. Oh, did we mention Rose is a rat?

The Broadway hit features a live rat, who plays the pet of the autistic teenage protagonist. When the original rat fell ill, Rose made her debut, taking the stage for the very first time just last week. Four days later, a shelf came off its hinges, crushing her and her dreams of becoming the next big Broadway star. Rest in peace, Rose.

Maybe they should rename the show to, "The Curious Incident of the Rat in the Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time" You think that would fit on the marquee?
