Scheuer is the recipient of the 2013 ASCAP Cole Porter Award for Excellence in Songwriting, and the Musical Theatre Network Award for Best Lyrics.

THE LION is 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 (winner of the ASCAP Cole Porter Award for songwriting) shares his gripping coming-of-age tale. Directed by Sean Daniels, whose work has been seen at The Kennedy Center and Actor's Theatre of Louisville, The Lion is a candid, poignant, and charming new solo musical from a next-generation troubadour.
