TEMPE, AZ — ASU Gammage's upcoming season brings some new shows to the Valley as well as some old favorites.
Among the new shows: "Mean Girls," based on the 2004 movie starring Lindsay Lohan; "Anastasia," based on the 1997 animated film; and "Come From Away," the Tony Award-winning musical (Best Director) about the 38 commercial planes and passengers diverted to Gander, Newfoundland in the wake of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
The season also includes "Miss Saigon," "Summer," "Fiddler on the Roof," and "Once on this Island."
The least expensive subscription starts at $195 and includes balcony-level seats (furthest from the stage) to all seven shows listed above. At last check on Monday (1 p.m.), the most expensive subscription was $745 for a single fourth-row seat in the "orchestra VIP" section (closest to the stage). You can purchase subscriptions, here.
"Blue Man Group," "Beautiful, The Carole King Musical," and "The Lion King" will return to the Valley as season options. They are not included in the season subscription, but subscribers can swap one Broadway show for another show in the lineup. Subscribers also can also purchase tickets to shows before they go on sale to the public.
A date has not yet been announced for when single show tickets will go on sale.
The last two seasons have sold out. The first was headlined by Lin Manuel Miranda's "Hamilton." "Dear Evan Hansen" led last year's season. (By the way, ASU Gammage announced in March that "Hamilton" will come back to the Valley during its 2020-2021 season alongside Disney's "Frozen.")
