Now the musical is officially the top-grossing show of 2013, with approximately $96.9 million in Broadway receipts. "The Lion King," which originally opened in New York in 1997, has consistently been a top grosser on Broadway throughout its 16-year run.  Coming in second place at the Broadway box office for the year was another perennial favorite -- "Wicked," with $95.3 million in receipts. "The Book of Mormon" brought in $90.4 million. PHOTOS: Arts and culture in pictures by...
