Thrill Me: The Leopold & Loeb Story

Thrill Me: The Leopold & Loeb StoryT01789285624
How far would you go in the name of obsession? The Lindbergh Kidnapping... The O.J. Simpson Case... The Great Train Robbery... so many crimes have been labelled the crime of the 20th Century. Not one however engaged the world as much as the case of Leopold and Loeb - self- confessed ‘Thrill Killers’. Stephen Dolginoff’s multi-award winning musical Thrill Me - The Leopold & Loeb Story - examines the relationship between Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb - both wealthy, normal and intelligent Chicago students, about to commence training to become lawyers. The show begins at Leopold’s 1958 parole board hearing. Through a series of flashbacks we are taken on a journey of two young men, one who believed he was above the law, obsessed and fuelled by the philosophy of Nietzsche to the point he believed he was a ‘Superman’ beyond good and evil. The other - a loner - became a willing accomplice, empowering Loeb in his misdemeanours. His reward - Richard’s time, attention and conditional love! Together, they both believed they had perpetrated the perfect crime, or was one more certain than the other?
