Broadway Grosses: Tony-Winning Tuners, Hot Tickets & Departing Shows See Summer Box Office Bumps
The cast of 'A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder'
'Holler' and 'The Cripple of Inishmaan' had their final and highest-grossing weeks.

The Tony-winning A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder exceeded capacity for the fourth consecutive week as it continues to inch toward joining the millionaire’s club (coming in this week at $957,145). Two other big hits of the season, Hedwig and the Angry Inch and Beautiful: The Carole King Musical, broke box office records once again at the Belasco Theatre and Stephen Sondheim Theatre, respectively. Meanwhile, Daniel Radcliffe and the cast of The Cripple of Inishmaan took their final bow on July 20 as scheduled. In their final week, the show brought in its highest gross of the 14-week run ($740,711). The Tupac tuner Holler If Ya Hear Me also shut its doors on July 20, but not before seeing its highest weekly gross (over 56% more than its previous record) and a considerable boost in attendance.

Here’s a look at who was on top—and who was not—for the week ending July 20:
