The Lion

Written and Performed by Benjamin Scheuer
Directed by Sean Daniels

"The best musical I've seen this year!" —The Huffington Post

A good storyteller uses everything he has. So Benjamin Scheuer uses his guitar—actually, six guitars—in The Lion, a wholly original musical experience that tells one man’s transcendent coming-of-age story. The award-winning songwriter inspires and disarms with his raw wit and emotional depth as he leads you on a rock ’n’ roll journey from boyhood to manhood, through pain and healing, to discover the redemptive power of music. The New York Daily News called The Lion “an irresistible winner!”
