THRILL ME a musical thriller by Stephen Dolginoff

How far would you go for love? This is the focus of THRILL ME, which takes a new look at the legendary “thrill killers”, Leopold and Loeb, who committed what was called the crime of the century in Chicago in 1924. The court trial concluded that the two young men murdered their victim simply for the thrill of it, but was that the whole truth? This musical version of the famous story goes behind closed doors to reveal what was pushed into the background at the time  –  that Leopold was  so enamored of Loeb that he unwillingly assisted him in the crime in exchange for sex and affection.

“A brilliant, unforgettable musical … Sends chills down the spine.”  New York Observer;
