A true story of love, loss, family loyalty, and the redemptive power of music. Following an award-winning run at the 2013 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, writer/performer Benjamin Scheuer shares his gripping coming-of-age tale. Directed by Sean Daniels, The Lion is a candid, poignant, and charming new solo musical from a next-generation troubadour.
