When Benjamin Scheuer decided to tell the story of his father's death and his own battle with lymphoma, he did it the best way he knew how: with a guitar. His one-man musical, "The Lion," features six different guitars, which he dubs "cast members," each tuned and painted to denote different periods of loss, struggle and redemption. Scheuer joins us in studio for a live performance and to discuss how music helped him process grief and eventually, to heal.
