ASU Gammage has announced that the highly anticipated Broadway show “Hamilton” will play at the venue January 30 to February 25, 2018.
Previously published schedules showed “Hamilton” as part of the 2017-2018 Desert Schools Broadway Across America season lineup, but dates for the performance had not been announced.
“It will be the first engagement of ‘Hamilton’ on a college campus,” says Colleen Jennings-Roggensack, executive director for ASU Gammage and associate vice president/cultural affairs for ASU.
That schedule includes 32 performances, Jennings-Roggensack added.
“It’s such an honor to bring this show to Arizona. ASU Gammage continues to be a leader in touring Broadway, and that continues with a full four weeks of ‘Hamilton’ here at ASU,” Jennings-Roggensack said. “We are truly excited for something special.”
According to ASU Gammage officials, the best way to ensure the ability to purchase tickets is through a 2017-2018 season subscription. Season ticket holders will be eligible to buy tickets before they go on sale to the general public.
Information on group sales and single tickets is yet to be announced.
“Hamilton” tells the story of America’s Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, an immigrant from the West Indies who became George Washington’s right-hand man during the Revolutionary War, and later the new nation’s first Treasury Secretary.
The musical features a Grammy award-winning score that blends hip-hop, jazz, blues, rap, R&B, and Broadway, and in 2016 it received an unprecedented 16 Tony nominations and 11 wins, including Best Musical.
