Broadway Grosses: Two New Tuners Continue to Make Box Office Splash Following 2014 Tony Awards
Jeb Brown as Don Kirshner, Jake Epstein as Gerry Goffin, Jessie Mueller as Carole King, Jarrod Spector as Barry Mann, and Anika Larsen as Cynthia Weil in 'Beautiful - The Carole King Musical'
'Beautiful' joined the top five grossing shows and 'Gentleman's Guide' continued to exceed capacity.

It's been just over one month since we got all glammed up for the 2014 Tony Awards, and two musicals that took home significant wins that night are continuing to make their presence known on the boards. Beautiful: The Carole King Musical, which took home two spinning trophies including Best Actress in a Musical for Jessie Mueller, landed a spot in the top five grossing shows this week, joining perennial faves The Lion King, Wicked, The Book of Mormon and Aladdin. At $1,253,526, the show broke the Stephen Sondheim Theatre box office record once again. Meanwhile, this year's big winner, A Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder, exceeded capacity for the third consecutive week, and brought in its second highest gross since it began performances last year ($901,681).
