'Lion King' takes Broadway crown from 'Phantom'

LOS ANGELES - Broadway has a new ruler, and its name is "The Lion King."
The musical over the weekend ousted long-standing box-office hit "The Phantom of the Opera" from the top of the list of all-time Broadway box office hits, a Disney spokeswoman said on Monday.
"The Lion King" has generated a cumulative gross of just over $853,800,000 on Broadway, pulling ahead of "Phantom" which has grossed slightly more than $853,100,000.
