'Lion King,' 'Spider-Man' score big at box office
Broadway's 'Lion King' and 'Spider-Man' musicals both score big at holiday box office
By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' At least two Broadway shows are giving thanks this week for a record-breaking holiday at the box office.

Producers of "The Lion King" and "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" each took in more than $2 million over their eight Thanksgiving week shows ending Sunday.

"The Lion King" earned $2,079,616, while the once-mocked "Spider-Man" made $2,070,195 over a week in which it celebrated beginning its second anniversary. Both shows were directed by Julie Taymor, though she is now suing the "Spider-Man" producers over payment.



Disney's "The Lion King" showed its staying power, reaching the highest single week gross in the show's 14-year run. The previous record was set in January when it grossed $1,993,370.
