Thrill Me

2007

Thrill Me
By Stephen Dolginoff

Starring Stephen Dolginoff and Joseph Demerly
Directed by Robert Waterhouse
Musical Direction by Michael Hake

This one was a coup for The New Phoenix Theatre... the Buffalo premiere of the acclaimed "chamber musical" about the famed Leopold and Loeb murder case from the 1920s, for two actors and a piano. The concept may sound bizarre but it worked. (No, there was no big production number when they killed Bobby Franks.) It helped that it starred two actors who were obsessed with the subject. We used a historical photo of the killers for the playbill and poster design and made it look like an old True Detective magazine. The production starred the author, who
was playing the role of Nathan Leopold for the fourth time. Joe Demerly, who had played Leopold in BUA's production of
Never The Sinner, co-starred. The show was a triumph.
An interview with playwright/star Stephen Dolginoff
