‘Hamilton’ national tour to kick off Tempe Broadway season with five-week run at ASU Gammage

“Hamilton” is launching a national tour in Tempe, kicking off the return to Broadway at ASU Gammage. Performances are set for a five-week run from Sept. 8 to Oct. 10, 2021.

“The pent-up emotion and excitement for the return to live theater is off the charts, and there’s no better way to welcome Broadway back to Arizona than with the opening of ‘Hamilton’,” said Colleen Jennings-Roggensack, vice president for cultural affairs and executive director of ASU Gammage. “We know our community is aching to see it live, and the demand is so great we’ve expanded the tour’s run to five weeks.”

“Hamilton” is the story of America then, told by America now. Featuring a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, R&B and Broadway, “Hamilton” has taken the story of Founding Father Alexander Hamilton and created a revolutionary moment in theater — a musical that has had a profound impact on culture, politics and education.

With book, music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, direction by Thomas Kail, choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler, and musical supervision and orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire, “Hamilton” is based on Ron Chernow’s acclaimed biography. It has won Tony, Grammy and Olivier Awards, the Pulitzer Prize for drama and an unprecedented special citation from the Kennedy Center Honors.

Single tickets for “Hamilton” will go on sale to the public on Monday, June 21, at 10 a.m. at asugammage.com.

“It's tempting to get tickets any way you can,” said Jeffrey Seller, the show’s producer. “There are many sites and people who are selling overpriced, and in some cases, fraudulent tickets. For the best seats, the best prices and to eliminate the risk of counterfeit tickets, all purchases for the ASU Gammage engagement should be made through asugammage.com.”

There is a maximum purchase limit of eight tickets per account for the engagement. When tickets go on sale, prices will range from $49 to $149 with a select number of premium seats from $299 available for all performances. There will be a lottery for 40 $10 seats for all performances. Details will be announced closer to the engagement. The ASU Gammage box office is closed for in-person sales. Tickets can be purchased 24/7 online at asugammage.com or Mondays-Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 480-965-3434.
