Edinburgh Festival Fringe smash-hit sensation 'Thrill Me: The Leopold & Loeb Story' will make its way to the Waterside Theatre next month.
Chicago, 1924. A shocking true story of two aspiring rich kids who kidnapped and murdered a 14 year-old boy in their desire to commit the perfect crime. An obsessive relationship which exploded into violence and, with the eyes of the world on their trial, they narrowly escaped the death penalty.
Electrifying winner of the prestigious Broadway Baby ‘Bobby’ award and nominated for numerous awards including 7 Off-West End Stage Awards and ‘Best Off-West End Production’ by WhatsOnStage.com, Thrill Me: The Leopold & Loeb Story has been captivating audiences since 2003. These true events were the basis for Never the Sinner, Compulsion, Swoon and were the inspiration for Patrick Hamilton's Rope, later made into the famous film thriller by Alfred Hitchcock.
Following universal acclaim at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and with a host of 5-star reviews, the smash hit musical heads to the Waterside Theatre on Saturday 9th June before returning to London.
