Ticket Giveaway: Win a pair of tickets to see The Lion starring Benjamin Scheuer, the much-praised solo show running through March 29th at the Lynn Redgrave Theater at Culture Project.

Armed with six guitars, Scheuer performs 15 tuneful songs in 70 minutes that together form a personal coming-of-age story: how his father, an amateur guitarist and a professional mathematician, helped spark his love of music; how his father died just after Scheuer at 13 had a  falling out with him;  how he met a girl who inspired him,  but she wound up traveling around the world to break up with him; how diagnosis of cancer before the age of 30,eventually helped him gain a stronger connection with his family and deeper understanding of the world.

Videos of several of the songs are below.

To win a pair of tickets to the show please answer one of the following questions. Either:

What show or show tune has made a tangible difference in your life, and how?
