Relationships can be murder. THRILL ME: THE LEOPOLD & LOEB STORY is a two-character musical drama that is based on the chilling true story of the legendary duo of Richard Loeb and Nathan Leopold, who committed one of the most infamous and heinous crimes of the twentieth century - the senseless murder of a young boy. Focusing on their obsessive relationship and utilizing Leopold's 1958 parole hearing as a framework, THRILL ME explores the series of events in 1924 Chicago that led about-to-be law students Leopold and Loeb to be forever remembered as 'the thrill killers.'

The crimes perpetrated by Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb in 1920s-Chicago have gone on to become interwoven in popular culture and have generated a multitude of films, plays, and fiction. They were barely 20 years old when they ensnared and murdered 14-year-old Bobby for no other gain but the thrill they'd get from killing a human being. They were sentenced for life plus 99 years but while the latter was attacked and killed in prison, Leopold was granted parole and released in 1958 - 33 years after being convicted.
