Broadway Grosses: Sunny Skies for Book of Mormon as Foul Weather Chills Box Office

Broadway Grosses: Sunny Skies for Book of Mormon as Foul Weather Chills Box Office
Rory O'Malley & cast in 'The Book of Mormon'
'The Book of Mormon' stays on top during a slow box office week.

The effects of Hurricane Sandy lingered on Broadway as yet another storm (this time a snow-dumping Nor'easter!) hit New York causing many shows' numbers to remain significantly down from previous weeks. That didn't affect The Book of Mormon's receipts though as audiences continue to pack in the Eugene O'Neill Theatre. The holidays have officially arrived on the Great White Way as yuletide tuners A Christmas Story and Elf began performances. The Katie Holmes-led comedy Dead Accounts also began previews this week, as did Lincoln Center's revival of Golden Boy.

Here's a look at who was on top and who was not for the week ending November 11:
