Tony and Oscar winner Joel Grey moderated a talkback about Benjamin Scheuer's autobiographical solo musical, The Lion, following a recent performance of the show at the Lynn Redgrave Theater.

Directed by Sean Daniels, The Lion is a story of love, loss, family loyalty, and the power of music that looks back on Scheuer's youth, his experiences with a verbally abusive father, and his diagnosis with cancer in his 20s. Scheuer, the recipient of the 2013 ASCAP Cole Porter Songwriting Award, is the leader of the band Escapist Papers. The show returns to New York through March 29, following a 2014 run at Manhattan Theatre Club's Studio at Stage II.

The creative team for The Lion includes Neil Patel (scenic design), Jennifer Caprio (costume consultant), Ben Stanton (lighting design), and Leon Rothenberg (sound design).
