Know Before You Go
We can't wait to see you at THE COLOR PURPLE
We want to make sure you don’t miss a minute of the show!
Here are some things to KNOW BEFORE YOU GO!
Due to capacity audiences, increased traffic and congestion on campus, you WILL experience traffic and parking delays arriving to and departing from ASU Gammage.
Considering normal ASU traffic, other special events and capacity audiences for THE COLOR PURPLE performances, we strongly encourage patrons who have tickets to Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday performances to pre-purchase parking passes to the Maroon Garage (Apache Structure) to ease your journey to the theater. Please click here to pre-purchase a parking pass.
Please take this into account when making your travel plans - ASU Gammage recommends patrons arrive at least 1 hour prior to performance time.
