Lion King is top dollar on Broadway

A new king reigns on Broadway.

Revenue figures indicate that The Lion King has snatched the title of Broadway's all-time highest grossing show from The Phantom Of The Opera.

The cumulative gross for The Lion King is now 853,846,062 dollars (£537,741,000). The total for Phantom is 853,122,847 dollars (£537,285,000).

What makes the achievement all the more remarkable is that The Lion King grabbed the title despite Phantom having almost a full 10 years' head start.

The upstart's victory is due in large part to its higher average ticket prices and a slightly larger theatre.

Phantom, now in its 24th year, is still the longest-running show.
