Broadway Grosses: Tony-Nominated Tuners Play Packed Houses as the Big Sunday Approaches

Broadway Grosses: Tony-Nominated Tuners Play Packed Houses as the Big Sunday Approaches
James Monroe Iglehart as Genie in 'Aladdin'
Three of the four Best Musical Tony nominees played full houses last week.

It's the week before the Tonys and audiences are scrambling to catch some nominated shows before they potentially bring home top honors at Radio City Music Hall! Three of this year's four Best Musical nominees (Aladdin, Beautiful: The Carole King Musical and A Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder) played to full houses, as did the revivals of Hedwig and the Angry Inch and A Raisin in the Sun. While Act One and Mothers and Sons both appeared in the bottom five by gross and capacity, a win for either Best Play or for their leading players (Tony Shalhoub and Tyne Daly, respectively) could help boost them out of the underdogs. We'll have to tune in on June 8 to find out!
