"Spider-Man" isn't the only dangerous show on Broadway, a new lawsuit claims.

Two theatergoers filed a $4 million suit yesterday over injuries they suffered while watching "Billy Elliot: The Musical."

Elaine Rosen and Cynthia Noblit, both of Kansas City, Mo., were sitting in the front row of the Imperial Theatre when they got creamed by a prop that came flying off the stage, their Manhattan federal lawsuit says.

The women were both hit "right in the face" by a plastic crate that either slipped out of a dancer's hands or was accidentally kicked into the audience, said their lawyer, Steven Halperin.
