Broadway shows at ASU Gammage in Tempe

There aren’t many cities that play host to the best touring Broadway shows. We’re very lucky to have an impressive lineup of Broadway shows in Tempe, Arizona each year at ASU Gammage. The 2021/2022 Desert Financial Broadway Across America – Arizona series kicks off in September, with HAMILTON, an epic tale of love and war, and continues through the summer with a nearly one month long run of family favorite THE LION KING.

It’s really exciting to have a few shows in Tempe this season that haven’t graced the Gammage stage before. MEAN GIRLS will bring Tina Fey’s now classic movie to life, which is absolutely “fetch.” And, COME FROM AWAY looks to be an absolutely charming tale of 7,000 airplane passengers who were stranded in a small town in Newfoundland on September 11, 2001, where fear and tension transformed into trust and friendships. 

Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, ASU Gammage is a beautiful landmark in Tempe and a terrific place to see a performance. ASU Gammage is located on the southwest corner of the ASU Tempe Campus, at Mill Avenue and Apache Blvd. If you choose to park near the theater, here are a few ASU Gammage parking tips. There is some construction in the area, so if you’re going straight to the show, we suggest arriving an hour ahead of time.

However, we think it’s best to make a night out of it. ASU Gammage is very close to restaurants in Downtown Tempe, making it easy to go to dinner beforehand, or go out for cocktails or dessert afterwards. Parking is ample in the downtown area and it is just a quick stroll or pedi cab ride to the auditorium. Heading to dinner before the show?
