Tickets are now available for The Lion, an autobiographical musical written and performed by singer-songwriter Benjamin Scheuer. Directed by Sean Daniels, the limited engagement will play from June 10 through July 13 at City Center. Opening night is set for June 26.
The Lion is a true story of love, loss, family loyalty and the redemptive power of music. Songs from the tuner are featured on Scheuer’s album, The Bridge.
The Lion has been previously performed in various incarnations at Lincoln Center, the St. James Theatre in London and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. The production will have set design by Neil Patel, costume design by Jennifer Caprio, lighting design by Ben Stanton and sound design by Leon Rothenberg.
