Tony bounce? What Tony bounce at the box office?May 6, 2013 @ 1:59 pm
NEW YORK (AP) - Tony Award nominations often mean a big bump at the box office, but not this year so far.
"Kinky Boots," "Matilda: The Musical," "Pippin" and "Rodgers + Hammerstein's Cinderella" _ the four shows that got the most nominations Tuesday _ either lost money or saw only small increases, according to data released Monday from The Broadway League.
"Matilda" made $4,785 less than the previous week's haul of $1,107,815, while "Cinderella" dropped $91,345 from last week's $943,353 total. "Kinky Boots" saw a modest $28,350 bounce to end at $1,140,513 and "Pippin" jumped $71,674 to finish with $785,386.
Three new shows continued their successful runs _ "Lucky Guy" with Tom Hanks, "Motown: The Musical" and Bette Midler's one-woman show "I'll Eat You Last: A Chat With Sue Mengers."
