It was another record-breaking season for ASU Gammage.

Last year's season drew in more than 400,000 people to Tempe's 3,000-seat Broadway theatre.

It featured hit shows like The Book of Mormon, Disney's Newsies, A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder, and If/Then, which starred Broadway legend, Idina Menzel.

ASU Gammage said in a media release this week that last year's season brought in an estimated $100 million to the economy. That's $11 million more than what the 2014-2015 season brought in (then a record-setting year).

It also boosted their subscribers to over 13,000, according to the release.

ASU Gammage's¬†upcoming season begins in September with Cabaret. Other season highlights include Beautiful - The Carole King Musical,  Matilda The Musical, Finding Neverland and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.

The Book of Mormon will return in May 2017 and the Tony-award winning smash hit Hamilton will join the 2017-2018 season.
