Description

Phoenix New Times' Description

In 1957 then ASU President Grady Gammage called on famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright to help create a unique auditorium for the university. Originally Wright had the design that would eventually become Gammage Auditorium in mind for Baghdad, Iraq but ended up placing the opera house in Tempe instead. The 3,000-seat performance hall is 80 feet tall and measures 300 by 250 feet, flanked on either side by giant pedestrian bridges. The construction of the $2.46 million building – the only public building Wright designed in the state of Arizona – took 25 months and was completed in September 1964. The multifunctional auditorium can be used for opera, musical and dramatic productions, symphony concerts and lectures. And today, Arizona State University's Gammage is one of the largest university-based presenters of performing arts in the world.

    The ASU Gammage building was Frank Lloyd Wright's last commissioned work. I love the Beyond series, Origins and random shows here. If you like Broadway, there you go. Arrive early for good parking.

  • Ellen DeGeneres on 02/24/11

    Not only is ASU Gammage a great place to check out live theatre, but it was also the location of one of Ellen’s Twitter giveaways. --Jeannie

  • The Ritz-Carlton on 05/07/13

    Welcome to ASU-Gammage, the last building Frank Lloyd Wright ever designed. It has ideal acoustics so that each of the 3,000 seats receive an even flow of sound.

  • Devils should see at least one performance at Gammage..especially since students receive a discounted rate.

  • The ASU Gammage Ambassadors is a student organization you can join during Fall Welcome! E-mail ambassadors@asugammage.com for more information.
