According to MOSI representative Shannon Herbon, Cirque Italia has refused to fulfill the insurance requirements specified in the contract. "MOSI will not allow a situation that leaves our guests unprotected," she said Thursday. "We regret the inconvenience that this will cause to our guests and members. Anyone who has purchased tickets can call 813-987-6000 for a full refund."
Herbon sent another announcement out shortly after stating that MOSI has agreed to give Cirque Italia five days to acquire the necessary insurance to protect both the guests and performers. "If they fulfill all of the requirements specified in the contract, then the show will go on."
