Theatre Coverages

Chubb has secured a lasting role in theatre's history by offering insurance coverages designed to meet the demands of complex and costly projects.

A typical Chubb Theatre policy includes coverages for:

  • Theatrical property
  • Performance Disruption
  • General Liability

Theatrical Property

Chubb’s definition of theatrical property includes any property used in the production, such as props, sets, wardrobe, sound and lighting equipment, mechanical and computer equipment, and backstage property. We value property on a replacement cost basis.

Insurance applies whether items are onstage, at a rehearsal space or in transit. Protection begins before the show opens and lasts through the final curtain call.

Our Theatrical Package policy gives producers the ability to protect the personal effects of all employees when those items are in the theater or otherwise in the care, custody or control of the production company.

Performance Disruption

Chubb offers the broad business income protection to meet the needs of large stage and touring productions.When the show can’t go on as scheduled, not only is revenue lost, but the production may be hit with extra expenses to get back on track.

Our Performance Disruption insurance protects against losses resulting from cancellation, interruption or postponement of one or more performances due to unexpected circumstances beyond our insured’s control. This includes the company’s inability to open a new production as scheduled. Typical industry business income policies only insure losses caused by damage to insured property.

Special Events

Chubb Commercial Insurance

Chubb Insurance has a long history of guarding special events from conventions, to trade shows, to exhibitions, entertainment or sporting events.

Often the kinds of problems that can lead to postponement, cancellation or relocation of an event are out of the planner's control. Look to Chubb for the kind of coverage needed to protect that financial exposure.

Chubb coverage helps to protect against problems including:

  • Physical defacement to the premises where the event is to take place
  • Extreme weather such as hurricanes, typhoons or tornadoes which prevent staging the event or attendance by many participants
  • Strikes by employees of the hotel, convention centre, air traffic, public transportation and other infrastructure workers
  • Withdrawal by the authorities of the obtained licenses and permits
  • Late or non-arrival of items essential to the event such as AV equipment, exhibit items, etc.
  • Non-appearance of a large number of participants
  • National mourning
  • No access to the venue
  • Any other sudden and accidental occurrence beyond the insured's control which is otherwise not excluded
