Hot off the heels of multiple Tony nominations, 'Gentleman's Guide' and 'Beautiful' receive box office highs.

Tony nominations were announced on April 29, and many shows received a box office bump hot off the heels of multiple nods. A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder, which led the pack last week with ten nominations, celebrated its highest gross of 2014 ($580,279) and a capacity of 93.30% (the highest since it began at the Walter Kerr). Beautiful, which received an impressive seven Tony nominations, broke a box office record at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre with their highest gross to date ($1,036,646). Meanwhile, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, after celebrating eight Tony nominations, exceeded capacity for the fourth consecutive week, with A Raisin in the Sun and Aladdin, which both received five nominations, also making appearances in the top five shows by capacity. Raisin was also one of the week's frontrunners by gross.

Here’s a look at who was on top—and who was not—for the week ending May 4:
