A dramatic musical about two of the most infamous murderers of the 20th Century, Thrill Me: The Leopld & Loeb Story recounts the chilling tale of Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb, two men who killed a young boy in 1924 because they wanted to prove they were capable of committing the perfect crime. Playwright and composer Stephen Dolginoff goes beyond the journalistic story reported at the time to vividly capture the unscrupulous obsession between these men as it descended from mutual sexual attraction into a dangerous criminal fixation.
In the Seattle premiere of Thrill Me, Dolginoff takes on the role of Nathan Leopold, a part he also played in New York at the York Theatre. Playing opposite him as Richard Loeb is John Bartley.
