Tierney -- who cracked ribs, suffered internal bleeding, broke four ribs, punctured his lung and cracked three vertebrae after the December 20 fall -- said he's been through "pretty aggressive physical therapy" since the accident.

Tierney appeared on Good Morning America in an exclusive interview which also included several other members of the cast.

Tierney said he realized his misfortune during the musical when, "All of a sudden it's like, ‘Oh! I'm not being held back!’"

Tierney said that when he realized he was falling, he "just had to duck and turn around ... I came around on my back."

Asked about the  growing  controversy  as three others -- including since-departed actress Natalie Mendoza (concussion) -- have suffered injuries working on the musical,  'Spiderman' star  Reeve Carney said "you have to trust the crew  ... we do appreciate everyone's concern."

With more than $65 million spent, the musical is easily the most expensive in Broadway history, as the second-most costly, Shrek The Musical, racked up a $25 million tab.
