Gammage auditorium is a wonderful venue to see plays and concerts. National touring companies bring their road shows to gammage throughout the year. It’s a large facility and has no center aisle. They offer headsets for people hard of hearing. There is ample free parking...More

Listen subscribing to the season for a few years now. Our recommendation would be to get a hearing device so that you can actually hear the words, otherwise the Acoustics in the auditorium are so bad, they just reverberate and it's hard to understand. You...More

Great play, good staff, good design. Balcony seating has a lot of stairs. Parking in the Maroon garage is very tricky. No signs to point you there, some students don't know where it's at because the only sign says "Apache" garage!🤔🤔🤔😞

This theater, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright is outwardly pleasing to the eye, radically different from the rest of the rather antiseptic ASU campus. Inside it is disappointing. We went to see the white hot musical HAMILTON and HAMILTON was nothing short of white hot...More

I have never sat in the balcony, but in the center of the lower level the seats can't be beat. I personally wouldn't sit in the first 10 rows or so as I prefer to sit back a little to get a broader view of the whole stage.
