TINA: THE TINA TURNER MUSICAL Sues Insurer for Denying Coverage of Losses After Performances Halted

Tina: The Tina Turner Musical

According to Law360, Tina: The Tina Turner Musical has sued its insurer, Chubb Insurance Company earlier this week in New York state court because the company 'wrongfully denied its claim seeking to cover losses from shows canceled by state coronavirus shutdowns.'

Like other Broadway shows, Tina played its last performance on March 11, 2020, and the production claims that losses should be covered under the terms of its insurance policy. Chubb claims that coverage is not owed because of a "communicable disease" exclusion in the policy.

"Despite TTM having paid substantial premiums to cover the risk of cancellation of performances of The Tina Turner Musical, Chubb placed its own financial interests above those of its policyholder and wrongfully denied TTM's claim," the complaint reads.
