Winning the “best musical” Tony Award has hurtled “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder” into its best week ever at the Broadway box office.
“A Gentleman’s Guide,” is about a poor man eliminating eight heirs ahead of him for a title – and the show took in just over $851,000 in the week ending Sunday.
But its Tony rival “Beautiful: The Carole King Musical” grossed $1,170,000 over eight shows – shattering the house record at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre.
The best play winner “All the Way” with Bryan Cranston, took in almost $289,000 more than the previous week – to end with $1,229,459.
Another winner was “Rocky,” which saw its gross and attendance rise.
