The Lion

The LionThe Lion, the Drama Desk Award-winning piece written and performed by Benjamin Scheuer, has redefined the genre of musical theater. Scheuer tells, sings, and plays the turbulent story of his family and his own brush with mortality, with his supporting cast of six guitars.

“A mesmerizing guitarist,” Scheuer’s "songs are awfully well-constructed there’s a hint of Paul Simon in Scheuer’s easy, knowing lyrics and disciplined musicianship,” says The Washington Post. The New York Times says Scheuer “gets to the heart of the matter” in this celebrated autobiographical show. Like its hero, The Lion roars.

“Spellbinding! The best musical I've seen this year!” – The Huffington Post

“Wondrous…revelatory…incredibly entertaining!” – San Francisco Gate

“Scheuer’s style of composing and performing exhibits flashes of jazz, bluegrass, Dylan, Jeff Buckley, maybe even a little Morrissey in its lyrical mix of the whimsical and the achingly personal.” – San Diego Union Tribune
