Gammage was honored with the Economic Impact Award.
The award is given to businesses, corporations, or individuals that make great contributions to Downtown Tempe.
The ASU Gammage 2015-2016 Desert Schools Broadway Across America/ Arizona season that wrapped up this summer resulted in an estimated $100 million of economic impact for the Valley of the Sun during its fiscal year that ended June 30, 2016.
The magic of Broadway and the arts not only enrich the community culturally but also play a critical
role in the economic vitality of the region. Every year, more than 400,000 people flock to Tempe’s
Frank Lloyd Wright designed ASU Gammage to see Broadway. The majority of theater-goers are
Valley residents but also includes ticket buyers in every county in Arizona, as well as out-of-state and
patrons coming up from Mexico to see Broadway at ASU Gammage.
Based on research by The Broadway League, since 2006 ASU Gammage has created more than
$550 million of economic impact for Arizona.
