Most Broadway shows had a lot to be thankful for this U-S Thanksgiving.

 Box offices were up  more than $6 million from the previous week.

The Broadway League, which is  the national trade association for the Broadway industry, released data  showing most shows roared back from a post-Superstorm Sandy slump.

For the week ending Sunday, Broadway pulled in $27,019,880 –  far better than the $20,881,272 it earned during the seven-day period before.

 Some of the biggest winners were “The Book of Mormon” and “Annie.”

Both of them set house records.

Disney also had reason to cheer. “Newsies” broke the record at the Nederlander Theatre and “The Lion King,”  set a new house record for an eight-show week… at the Minskoff Theatre.
